Great Things To Do - Great North Woods NH Region

Every single season in the Androscoggin Valley offers exciting things to do and see

Every season is the perfect season in the Androscoggin Valley, NH, where the north side of Mt. Washington and the Upper Androscoggin River meet. In the winter, this wonderland is a celebration of alpine and cross-country skiing, ice skating, snowshoeing and snowmobiling. You can go snow-tubing, sleigh-riding and dog-sledding. Spring means fishing, kayaking and canoeing. Summer brings golf, scenic gondola rides whitewater rafting, local theater and live music. And, in the fall, it’s time to hike or bike or zip line through the trees bursting with color. Don’t miss RiverFire in October, with bonfires along the river and hundreds of carved and lit pumpkins. Horseback riding, moose tours, camping and glamping and quaint New England towns to stroll through: It’s all happening in this place where adventures never end.

Before you visit Santa’s Village, you might want to make a list – and check it twice

You might want to make a list (and check it twice) before heading to Santa’s Village, the amusement park extraordinaire in the White Mountains. There are so many rides to choose from, including a Ferris wheel, Reindeer Carousel, flume, tube slide, bumper cars, roller coasters, trains and monorails shaped like sleighs. Over on the water park side, there are three-story twisty-turny slides, a splash pad and enough interactive fun to keep the kids entertained for hours. Families can rent cabanas or tiny suite retreats. You can visit with Santa, stop by the barn to feed the reindeer, go on a scavenger hunt or visit a bakery to decorate your own gingerbread man. Stop by the blacksmith’s shop for a sized-just-for-you souvenir ring.
