Though surrounded by scenic
beauty, the Androscoggin Valley
serves as business center,
industrial hub, and diverse
marketplace for the broader region.
If you enjoy outdoor recreation, you will find endless trails to explore in all four seasons. The region offers hiking and cycling for all ability levels. In the winter, experience pristine landscapes from snowshoes, cross-country skis or snowmobiles. Our rivers offer excellent canoeing and kayaking. Camping, climbing, fishing and hunting opportunities abound.
We are centrally located to several of the famous White Mountains Attractions, and within a one-hour drive of eight major downhill ski areas and hundreds of kilometers of groomed cross-country trails. Vast networks of snowmobile trails are groomed by local clubs. Click here to see a video about planning a winter adventure in the Androscoggin Valley.
Here you will find the best aspects of New England. Memorable scenic views await you around each bend in the road. Small towns offer warm hospitality in a generous mix of lodging and dining establishments. Enjoy the arts with outdoor concerts in the park, or indoors at the Medallion Opera House and the St. Kieran’s Community Center of the Arts.
