After months of hibernation indoors, we can finally feel a little spring in the air. As the flowers begin to emerge from under the melting snow, Whiteface Lodgelocated in the iconic Adirondack town of Lake Placid, N.Y., offers the perfect place to relax and enjoy Mother Nature.
Spring is the best time of year to explore the rivers and rapids, and a whitewater rafting trip is an unforgettable adventure. A guided tour from Adirondac Rafting allows guests to feel the spray and take in the incredible scenery. The waters of the Adirondacks offer some of the best fishing in New York; whether it’s with a lure or a fly, anyone can go fish!
For those who’d prefer to view the water on land, a trip to Beaver Meadow Falls or High Falls Gorge is the answer. The springtime runoff from the melting snow makes it ideal to see the immense waterfalls at their strongest. At Beaver Meadow Falls, a short hike leads visitors to a view of one of the most picturesque waterfalls in the Adirondacks, looming at an impressive height of 60 feet. While at High Falls Gorge, a half-mile walk around the gorge provides visitors a view of four impressive falls: Rainbow Falls, Climax Falls, Mini Falls, and the Main Falls.
For those who would rather avoid the water altogether, a trail ride on horseback at Emerald Springs Adirondack Ranch is just the way to go over hill and dale and take in the amazing views. If getting outdoors as a spectator is more appealing than participating, there are micro-breweries, wineries, and a distillery to provide a bit of local flavor.
After a long day enjoying the fresh air and beautiful landscape, the Spa at Whiteface Lodge offers the perfect way to wind down and relax. The HydroFacial will help melt away the winter blues and leave skin healthier and revitalized with the perfect spring glow.
