Why Zoar Outdoor
Based out of our convenient location in the Berkshires in western Massachusetts, Zoar Outdoor river trips, zip line canopy tours and instructional clinics are only 2 hours from Boston and Hartford and just 3 hours from Providence and New York City.
We hire carefully, train thoughtfully and promote an atmosphere of teamwork, mutual respect and fun. Our staff is exceptional.
Having spent a lot of time in and around the outdoor recreation industry, I can categorically say that your operation is truly a cut above the rest; the staff were unfailingly friendly, helpful, and encouraging, and went out of their way to make me feel welcome.
We use only the best rafts, kayaks, SUPs, canoes, bikes, snowshoes, and skis from the most reputable manufacturers. Our zip line canopy tour uses top quality gear from harnesses to zip line trolleys. We follow an aggressive maintenance and replacement program that ensures that the equipment you count on to keep you comfortable and safe is state-of-the-art and in excellent condition.
We’re located right on the Deerfield River at the end of our most popular trip, meaning that most of our guests don’t experience a bus ride at the end of their trips. Onsite camping and lodging, hot showers, the first zip line canopy tour in southern New England, a fully stocked outfitters shop and a commercial kitchen that produces consistently delicious meals set us apart.
