At Outdoor New England (ONE), we believe the more you are outside, the happier you’ll be.
Our family of guides, instructors and staff are happiest when we are outside hiking, biking, paddling, rafting, or fishing. These are the adventures that get us back into our bodies, out of our minds and making memories with those we care about.
Our retail gear store is full of high quality products from sustainable companies like Patagonia, Darn Tough, NRS, Jackson Kayak, Pyranha Kayaks and Badfish, all of which support your memories in the outdoors.
With a name like Outdoor New England it would be hypocritical to just operate a retail store. Our products support our many adventure opportunities; bike, kayak, canoe and standup paddleboards gear rentals, whitewater rafting, whitewater kayaking, mountain biking and fishing lessons. All of which are operated almost entirely in the city of Franklin Falls, New Hampshire.

    The crew at Outdoor New England - ONE use what they sell themselves, paddling or camping and so many other adventures! They know the gear in and out and can answer all your questions. I will be back for some kayaking gear and recommend stopping in and checking the place out! They even have guided trips on the river for rafting, kayak lessons and I even think they are offering surf lessons on a New Hampshire River! Just an amazing shop and staff...

    Marty the owner was super friendly and helpful. He was our Whitewater rafting guide and the owner of ONE. The rafting experience was 2 runs down the same stretch of the river that takes about 25 minutes each run. We were on the river when flow was about 650cfs so not super fast. 1000 and above according to Marty is when things get REALLY interesting. We still got to do the “Varsity” surfing rapid which was a lot of FUN so do what he says when he says it! Marty took the time to know our names and add the personal touch. You can tell he loves the community he is a part of. A couple of the pictures is the start of their vision for the town of Franklin...a whitewater feature park! We are looking forward to returning and checking it out when it’s finished. I think kayaks are the next adventure for us :) Thanks for the great experience!

    From getting necessary equipment to instruction on the foundations of whitewater kayaking, or even getting your drysuit repaired, this shop is the only ONE you want to go to! Marty, Joe, and everyone else not only take the time to learn your name, they are incredibly helpful in getting you what you need. They have a great selection of kayaks, equipment, and gear for those new to the sport as well as seasoned paddlers. Their kayaking instruction is phenomenal as well! Joe took a small group of us down the Upper Winnipesaukee river to teach us the basics of whitewater, from ferrying to catching an eddy, surfing a hole, and most importantly river safety. Marty has been teaching the rolling classes and he has helped me up my game to where I was able to roll in current at the whitewater park! They're an incredible resource to the entire region, and they're helping revitalize a town that had been struggling for many years with the creation of the whitewater park at Mill City Park. Whitewater isn't the only area they specialize in also. They have equipment for all types of kayaking, rafting, and offer rentals and shuttling for kayaks, as well stand up paddleboards and bicycle rentals, and instruction and tours for anything you want to do on the water with a paddle. Friendly, personable, passionate about the outdoors. That's them. That's ONE.

    I can't say all the good things I want to say about these guys because the post will be too long, and you all won't read it... But... Outdoor New England is the GO TO shop for all your white water kayaking needs. (They have more than WW gear too) Not sure if the sport is for you? Marty is excited to jump in the river and impart upon you the knowledge you need to have whether you buy any gear or not. You just can't find that anywhere else. And Joe, he can talk your ear off about all the cool places you should be paddling, and when. He's got the beta! I don't live in the area, but I've been to this shop twice now and each time ONE has gone above and beyond to make sure that I get the right gear to demo, have the right knowledge to use it, and have a good experience when I do! This last time Marty was on the river handing out pro tips that he could have been charging for in a private lesson. These folks are great people, doing what they love, and it shows!
