Summer seems a long way off, but if you plan ahead, and like your travel on the adventurous side,ELC Rafting of Berlin, N.H., is combining a floatplane ride with a whitewater rafting trip this summer, which has just been named a certified “Grand Adventure” by New Hampshire Grand, the official visitor information source for the Great North Woods and northern White Mountains. ELC’s “Get Your Feet Off the Ground” Rapid River package leaves from Lake Umbagog in Errol, where patrons hitch a ride on a floatplane to Lakewood Camps on the shores of Lower Richardson Lake in Maine. There, they will leave on a rafting journey that includes Rapid River rapids designated from class two to four as they make their way back to Lake Umbagog. The trips start July 19. For information, visit www.nhrafting.com

New Hampshire Grand also recently named several “Best Of” businesses, including Moose Muck Coffee House in Colebrook; Orvis Outfitters at the Cabins at Lopstick in
Pittsburg; and Porky Gulch Bike Shop and Gateway Gallery and Gifts, both in
Gorham.
