Tucked away in the northeastern part of the United States lies the beautiful state of Maine. Undoubtedly, the landscape is as scenic as anywhere in the country with vibrant forests, dramatic season changes and a plethora of paddling options to satisfy any paddler.

In this video, river paddler Luke Hopkins teams up with a furry friend to explore the gorgeous and winding St. Croix River–which forms the easternmost section of the US/Canada border. Rich in both flora and fauna–the river is a perfect destination for paddlers (and paddling pups) looking for a picturesque tour of the northeast.


A dreamy lake in Maine that is every paddler’s dream.
