Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.
— Kenneth Grahame, Wind in the Willows

Apeiron Expeditions will be offering River Readings trips this summer and fall. Join us for a day of canoeing and conversation on one of Maine's many scenic rivers or lakes. Our River Readings trips are designed to be a relaxing and thought provoking exploration of waterways and the ideas they inspire. Topics of conversation include Henry David Thoreau's trips and ideas, environmental philosophy and ethics, connections between culture and nature, and many more. Come alone or share the experience with friends.
