Moosehead Lake is beautiful no matter how you choose to enjoy it. Whether you’re hiking a trail, floating out on the water, or even just relaxing on shore, the area’s natural beauty is as undeniable as it is unavoidable.
That being said, one of the very best ways to take in Moosehead Lake is from above in a high-flying seaplane tour.
The Moosehead Lake region is vast with miles and miles of undisturbed nature. Seeing it from the air is breathtaking and indescribably incredible. The spectacular scenery stretches out below you like a vast quilt. An unbroken vista of dense woods, sheltered meadows, high mountains, and lush river valleys as far as the eye can see.
Float plane tours can be more than just a scenic flight, too. A seaplane can provide transportation for a remote fishing expedition, a day of paddling on the lake, and more.
Seaplanes are small but comfortable, providing unlimited access to the views stretching out below you on all sides. Your pilot will also act as guide, directing you to points of interest and regaling you with tales of the region.
Another unique aspect of a seaplane tour is that seaplanes take off from and land on the water, not an airport runway. One more reason why Moosehead Lake seaplane tours are such a unique and must-do experience!
