 Adirondack Connections is an all-season, fully insured, owner/operated guide and trip planning service specializing in small group outdoor adventures. We have welcomed outdoor enthusiasts - both beginner and more experienced - since 2002 for hike, paddle, backpack, snowshoe, and camping experiences. Based in the northern Adirondacks, we are about a 35 minute drive west of Lake Placid. We offer experiences throughout the Adirondack Park and design custom trip packages based on individual and group interests, needs, desires and comfort levels. The St. Regis Canoe, Bog River, Whitney Wilderness, Essex Lakes, Northville-Placid Trail and the popular High Peaks Wilderness, Raquette River, Saranac Lakes, and Cranberry Lake Wild Forest areas are nearby.

Exclusive to Adirondack Connections are guided paddling experiences using the lightest (<12-18 lbs.) and most popular Adirondack double paddle solo canoe built by the folks at Hornbeck Boats ( We explore the glacial ponds, streams and lakes that comprise our wilderness playground and provide Hornbeck Boats and all paddling gear for these trips.

We also offer a variety of Women's paddle, backpack, snowshoe and camping experiences, as well as hiking trips in the Adirondack High Peaks for those aspiring to become Adirondack 46ers. Complete to partial outfitting, and meals for most dietary preferences, can be accommodated. Owner and lead guide, Lynn Malerba, strives to provide personalized, memorable, informative and satisfying experiences for all who share time with us in the great outdoors. We look forward to serving you!

Wish to explore waters surrounded by pristine Adirondacks?  Unsure of how to go about this venture?  Well, then, visit just as I did several years ago.  You'll meet Lynn Malerba, who'll be an extraordinary addition to your paddling life!  This summer, I completed my second pond-hopping experience with this certified Adirondack Guide.  Lynn's knowledge and experience will delight and enrich your day.  It was she who directed our eyes to the osprey nest, to the bald eagle perched far above, to the sunning turtle, to the beaver dam under construction, and our ears to the sound of a loon in distress.  She is just amazing as she guides us along at such a restful pace.  She offers other Adirondack explorations, so be sure to check out her website .... I'm so glad that I did!

Thanks so much for being an excellent guide for my son John and I.   I loved how you taught strategies and safety in canoeing and camping so well to a 12 year old with no prior experience and to an old man like me.   The choice of canoes was perfect as was the campsite.  It was great to see John accept personal responsibility for care of his canoe and his camping gear.   On our way home, John announced that he loved the Adirondacks and would like to come back.  I'm sure we will soon.  Thanks again, Lynn.   Have a great summer.
