The Berkshires Experiences

This historic region offers a wealth of memorable events and activities framed by breathtaking natural beauty. The Berkshires feature year-round culture, recreation, and adventure in quaint towns like Stockbridge, Lenox, and Williamstown, while North Adams has the fabulous Museum of Contemporary Art.

Below is a small selection of the tours we can organise for you when you have booked your USA holiday with us and are visiting The Berkshires.  

After a scenic chairlift ride to the top and a second zip technique orientation by your assigned guides, you progress to Valley Jump Zip 1. This introductory zip is longer than any other non-Berkshire East Canopy Tour Zip Line in the state. 

Three more increasingly longer and faster zip lines, and a series of short hikes around the summit of Berkshire East, bring the guest to the start of the VALLEY JUMP.  

Unique dual racing lines provide the opportunity to challenge your friends (newly met, or ones you brought) and zip side-by-side through the treetops! After the six zip lines, the tour culminates in the perfect (and unique in the industry) downhill chairlift ride from the summit of the mountain. 

 

Think of it as a combination alpine slide and roller coaster. The Thunderbolt takes riders up 1,580 feet of up-track through the forest before the cart disengages and gravity takes over.

The 3,870 feet of downhill track are designed with swooping turns, banked corners, rolling drops, and 360° turns. Each cart is equipped with its own braking system, allowing you to slow speeds to a comfortable pace or accelerate to G-Force inducing levels.

 All guests will be required to wear a Berkshire Whitewater issued PFD (Personal Flotation Device) and helmet. You will also be provided with a paddle. We raft a section of class III and IV whitewater on the Deerfield River in Northwestern Massachusetts. We finish the trip at Dunbar Brook in Florida, MA. The trip usually takes about 4.5 hours overall, including registration, transportation to the river, a home cooked meal served at our base, and a slide show of your run through the biggest rapids.

Look Memorial Park, consisting of more than one hundred and fifty acres, was a gift from Mrs. Fannie Burr Look in honor of her late husband, Frank Newhall Look. Mrs. Look provided the land, funds for its development, and a trust fund to help with upkeep. Mr. Look was the chief executive of the Prophylactic Brush Company in Florence from 1877 to 1911, and the park opened to the public in 1930.

Look park provides fun for the whole family with varied activities incorporated within the park including pedal boats, play grounds, mini golf, picnic areas, water spray park, wildlife centre and shops.
