Maine's Kennebec Valley

Taking its name from the Kennebec River, Maine's Kennebec Valley region stretches from the river's birthplace at Moosehead Lake down past the capital at Augusta. Along each mile of the river, the ever-changing scenery is strikingly beautiful.

In that very same river, lovers of the outdoors will find prime paddling, fly-fishing, hiking, and whitewater rafting on the Kennebec and Dead rivers. Further south the river's pace slows as it passes through lively villages and riverside towns filled with offbeat excursions, local shopping and dining, plus unmatched cultural offerings.

Make a plan to go your own way in Maine's Kennebec Valley.
