Preparing for a Hike in the Adirondacks

hikeYou probably don’t come to Lapland Lake Nordic Vacation Center to spend time in your cottages. They are fabulous, of course, but if you’ve made it this far, we highly recommend that you take advantage of our beautiful surroundings and take a walk around our 30 miles of wooded trails and our three-mile nature trail.

As easy as hiking is – just put one foot in front of the other – it is wise here in the Adirondacks to prepare properly. Read below for some tips on how to prepare for a hike around Lapland Lake Nordic Vacation Center. Continue reading

Reindeer Antlers!

DSC04442Handsome Viima is busy growing his rack (all of this progress has been since mid-April). It will be a beautiful one and will stay “in velvet” until the fall when he will rub off all the velvet to reveal the hard antler beneath! His winter coat is coming off gradually, and soon he will have a shimmering summer coat to proudly display.

Special Family Members!

DSC04438Kiva (Karelian bear dog) and Balto (husky mix rescue pup) have become the best of friends! Balto always wants all the toys (that is a chewy bone between his paws), and Kiva generally waits patiently for Balto to become distracted before stealing them from him. That’s what she is doing in this photo…just biding her time!

Spring in the Adirondacks

If you love to see nature erupt in the spring – from the bushes and wildflowers blooming to the young fauns and cubs emerging from dens – you owe it yourself and your family to make a trip to the Adirondacks in the spring.

Yes, the temperatures can be a bit chilly in late-March through mid-June. And you may see some snow still on the hiking trails (cross-country skiing, anyone?). But the tourists haven’t really arrived yet, so visiting the Adirondacks in the spring can mean just you and the quiet wonder of nature as you hike, canoe, fish, bike – or even ski or snowshoe.

Read below for some great things to do in the spring in the Adirondacks.

  • magnoliaGo for a horseback ride. Several ranches offer riding opportunities for experienced riders and beginners alike. Children love to ride horses and those ranches that offer rides always have gentle and slow smaller horses for your gentle, slower and smaller children.
  • Check out the downtowns of the towns of Lake George and Glens Falls. Both have an eclectic mix of restaurants, galleries, gift shops, boutiques and more that are sure to please everyone in your party.
  • Golf! Several golf courses and resorts are open at this time of year, yet the links are far less crowded.
  • Book a massage, facial, pedicure – or all three – at one of several salons and/or spas located in the Adirondacks. If coming to the Adirondacks for a romantic getaway spas, many offer couples’ massages, facials, etc.
  • Go canoeing, kayaking or even whitewater rafting.
  • Go for a hike! Yes, it probably will be muddy, but just be sure to wear warm layers that you don’t mind getting dirty, bring a walking stick, a good hat, sturdy shoes, plenty of water, sandwiches, and get ready to be amazed at the flora and fauna along the trail! Depending on any lingering snowpack, see how many of the 46 Adirondack mountain peaks you can climb in one day (it is possible to climb two or three in one day – they’re quite close together).
  • Nights can still get chilly, making for the perfect excuse to stay snug and cozy in front of a fireplace drinking hot cocoa or a terrific glass of wine.
  • Go on a getaway. If you love the outdoors, you’ll love the Adirondacks in the spring. The earth is just waking from its winter sleep. Trees and shrubs are starting to bud. Birds are starting to call to each other. Mammals are coming out of their burrows or stretching their legs to welcome the renewal. The quiet is intoxicating, the weather during the day is crisp and the surroundings are breathtaking.
