Zoar Outdoor Named Top 5 Rafting Company by 
USA Today 

Charlemont, MA… With 15 rafting outfitters nationwide chosen from an expert panel by USA Today, readers voted Zoar Outdoor, a New England rafting company based in Charlemont, MA as a Top 5 rafting company in the Nation.

“We couldn’t be prouder.” Says Bruce Lessels, President and Co-Founder. “I believe we have the best guides and guests in the world and now it’s clear that many people agree.”

Zoar Outdoor has commonly been ranked by TripAdvisor, the go-to source for travel reviews, as a top activity provider in Western Massachusetts but this award means a bit more, says Jacqui Henry - Sales & Marketing Manager, “This is a national poll. Just to be included by the panel in the original 15 was amazing;  then to think our guests and readers ranked us in the top 5, that’s humbling.”

Started in 1989, Zoar Outdoor was a road-trip conversation among friends that turned into a business plan. It now has over 100 employees and offers guided raft trips, Massachusetts’ first zipline canopy tour, on-site lodging, an outdoor retail store, and an instructional program.
