Kick-off the summer this Memorial Day Weekend in Rangeley. A quiet town with picturesque surroundings and plenty of the fun and adventure you’d expect in a Memorial Day getaway, everyone in the group will find something to do. Enjoy activities that are unique to the area like moose spotting, a seaplane tour of the area, or ask the locals and hit some of the area hot spots for a special night on the town. You’ll have no trouble finding things to do for your Rangeley vacation this holiday. Make sure to bring a mask, since many of these activities require one.

Lake Fun

Many popular Memorial Day vacation spots include water –usually a single lake or the ocean. A break in Rangeley means access to not just one body of water but three! A fun way to see the lakes is by renting canoes, kayaks, paddleboards, or motorboats. With multiple spots to explore, you could spend multiple days out on the water and still have more to discover! Bring your own food and beverages for a picnic and a full day of fun by the water.

Seaplane Tour

A fun and interesting way to see the area you’ve chosen for Memorial Day relaxation. Get a bird’s eye view of the breathtaking scenery of the Rangeley area and its lakes by taking a guided seaplane tour with Acadian Seaplanes. Bring your camera and keep your eyes peeled for wildlife like moose and other native species in their natural habitat. Choose their “fly & dine” option and touch down for a meal at a remote lakeside camp where you’ll enjoy a three-course meal including soup or salad, entree, and dessert.

4th Annual Rangeley RuKaBi Race

Visitors who love to get out and get active will want to sign up for the 4th Annual Rangeley RuKaBi Race, beginning at Rangeley Town Park on Sunday, May 30that 10:00 AM. This event pits competitors against one another in a grueling three-leg race similar to an Iron Man. Racers will complete a 3.5-mile bike ride, a 1.5-mile kayak section, and finish with a 3.5-mile run. Whether you’re a fitness enthusiast looking to push your limits or just looking for a fun way to explore our region, the RuKabi Race is an adrenaline-pumping good time!

Horseback Riding

Spend Memorial Day in Rangeley outdoors as much as possible. After you’ve explored the area on the water, from the air, and on foot, saddle up and take in the scenery on horseback. Saddleview Farm offers trail rides at walking pace in one-hour blocks. Some words of advice from Saddleview about your ride: wear closed-toed shoes and long pants for ultimate comfort. If you had fun and would like to learn more about riding, including proper riding techniques and how to groom and tack a horse, ask about Western-style or English-style lessons. Lessons are each an hour long. Before booking any experience, ask about age or other requirements.


Prepare yourself for a relaxing, fun-filled vacation or iron out all the kinks after exploring every inch of Rangeley. Choose any one of the independently owned massage companies to help you relax to the fullest so you can enjoy every moment of your trip and head home rested and relaxed. Inquire about services such as Swedish massage, deep tissue massage, Thai yoga massage, and more. Some will even come to you, so ask about receiving services at your vacation rental, but keep in mind there may be an extra fee for travel to your location.
