Welcome to Adirondack Connections. We invite you to join us in our travels, where ever they may take us.
Adirondack Connections is an all-season, fully insured, owner/operated 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 our guided Hornbeck Boat paddling trips. We lead excursions on the many glacial ponds, streams and lakes that comprise our wilderness
playground... and we provide the lightest and most popular Adirondack built solo boats
to do so! Our fleet of Hornbeck Boats weigh 12-18 lbs. and combine the best features of a canoe and
a kayak. Canoes are roomy, gear haulers, easy to get in and out of and convenient to carry. Kayaks are fast, maneuverable, comfortable, seaworthy and efficient to paddle. The boats
we provide for our trips combine all of these features in addition to being very light and durable. They are ideal for exploring the Adirondack waters in our backyard!
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. Lynn enjoys sharing her passion, experience and favorite places with
those willing to spend time in the outdoors with her. She will be with you each step and stroke throughout your journey. Lynn's passion is foot bound wilderness
exploration, especially in areas she has yet to experience. She prefers taking "lesser traveled paths" and opts for more remote areas when she has the option.
For paddling trips she prefers calm, more secluded waters (small ponds, streams, rivers and marsh areas), where there is often abundant wildlife.
She revels in the serenity and beauty the flora, fauna, mountains and waters provide. Lynn has a wealth of experience hiking, backpacking, camping, snowshoeing,
cross-country skiing, winter camping, paddling and trip leading, throughout the Adirondacks, Shenandoah & Acadia National Parks and the White Mountains, which
she brings to her wilderness excursions.
Lynn prefers to "live simply" and spend her time showing others how to seek a more peaceful existence in the outdoors.
She has worked informally with people of all ages in outdoor-related endeavors since 1996 and looks forward to serving you!
