After 8 years of exploring North Conway, Jackson and Bartlett in the White Mountains of New Hampshire we had the chance to explore the section of the Saco River from Humphreys Ledge in Bartlett through to the First Bridge in North Conway. The Bartlett Inn provides lodging near North Conway and Storyland and is a great location for tubing, kayaking and canoeing down the Saco River. We recommend the section from North Cownay to Conway and Fryeburg in the dryer times so you do not have ot drag your boat in low spots. There were so many beautiful deep spots along the way. We came off our tubes and swam and dove in off rocks, even swung from trees like tarzan. The kids loved the adventure. Better than Storyland! The adults loved that you could see every granule of sand on the bottom even in 6 feet of water. As a caution there are some sunken trees and braches you have to be careful of. We packed plenty of snacks and drinks and floated them on a small tube in a plastic bag. This tubing trip took about 4.5 hours and was a fantastic day out for kids from 6 years old to adults and teens. The river is very warm right now and the air temps in the 90s thi sweek made it the best place to keep cool! This river adventure takes some planning as you either have to set up pick up and drop off with Andes canoe and kayak rental or spot one car at the end and one at the beginning. Sit back, relax, cool off and enjoy one of the most beautiful scenic days out in the US right here at the Bartlett Inn NH! 1 800 292 2353.
