Moosehead Lake’s “Moose Head”

Have you ever wondered why this vast lake is called Moosehead Lake?

The only way to see the actual moose head is by air.

I have been on several sea plane rides at Moosehead Lake but I have never actually see the

moose head, until my most recent trip…

8 Day Moosehead Lake Summer/Fall Itinerary

There is so much to do…you can find something to do everyday!


Moosehead Lake- a “Bird’s Eye View” from a seaplane

Moose Safari

Let us help you plan your trip which will start at…

The Greenville Inn

Here are some suggestions:

  • Day 1Seaplane Ride: Moosehead Lake is the biggest sea plane base east of the Mississippi, so take in the massive Moosehead Lake by viewing it from a seaplane.
  • Day 2: Moose Safari: Take a guided tour by an expert Maine Guide to a remote area where you will then board a canoe.   You will observe wildlife such as moose, loons, river otters and bald eagles.  Many times the moose are actually swimming right in front of you!
  • Day 3: Take a 30 minute scenic drive to a boat launch where you will board a boat taxi and take a short ride to historic  Mount Kineo. Take one of the various paths (depending on your ability) to the top where the views are magnificent!
  • Day 4: Take a relaxing cruise up Moosehead Lake on the historic steamboat the Katahdin.
  • Day 5: Take a picnic lunch and hike to a magnificent gorge called Gulf Hagas (also called the Grand Canyon of Maine)
  • Day 6: White Water Rafting: The Moosehead Lake Region is situated between 3 white water rafting rivers, so choose a ½ day or whole day trip on one of the various leveled rivers by a licensed Maine white water guide.
  • Day 7: Rent a kayak or canoe and explore Moosehead Lake’s many coves.
  • Day 8:   Fishing: Moosehead Lake and the surrounding lakes and rivers offer a multitude of fishing choices.  Local outfitters and guides will gladly plan a day trip and take care of all the details for you.

Of course, your days will start and end at the historic Greenville Inn where you will enjoy scrumptious breakfasts and dinner at our renowned restaurant…

“this is as good as it gets!”
