The "north country" or Great North Woods of New Hampshire is known for its mountain hikes, white water boating, waterfalls, covered bridges, moose sightings, bird watching, snowmobiling and beautiful autumn foliage. When you choose bed and breakfast lodging in this region, you can gaze up to see millions of stars and hear only nature. Standing at the 45th Parallel in Stewartstown or Clarksville, you are halfway between the Equator and the North Pole.
Wildlife love this region: visit Moose Alley and Lake Umbagog National Wildlife Refuge, North Country Moose Festival in Colebrook, and Umbagog Wildlife Festival in Errol to see them; or you may spot moose just about anywhere at dawn and dusk. New Hampshire has five habitats for bird watching; the Great Northern Boreal Forest is a unique habitat with rare birds.
