     There is no better way to see Vermont's breathtaking landscape than from a canoe or kayak. You, too, can experience the freedom and beauty as you float through the magnificent Green Mountains.


We offer daily self-guided and guided river trips:
Winooski (wi-noo-skee) River
Lamoille (la-moyl) River

We also offer specialty tours:
The Boyden Winery Canoe & Kayak Trip is a two-hour paddle that ends with a wine-tasting and winery tour.

The Ice Cream Float is a two-hour easy paddle on the Winooski or Lamoille River that includes a Ben & Jerry's Factory Tour and ice cream.

     Each has its own majestic character and we offer trips to suit first-time paddlers and experts alike! Paddle at your own pace and enjoy the scenery and the water. There are many places to pull your boat out of the water, eat a picnic lunch, go swimming, fishing, take photos, or just soak up the sun. You can paddle a solo or tandem kayak, or a canoe!
