Paddling
It’s nice to cool off by the water on hot summer days. Several lakes and rivers in the area are a flat-water dream for paddling. Explore Vermont’s breathtaking landscape from a canoe, kayak or stand-up paddle-board (SUP). Float down the river with a certified guide, paddle to a winery for a tasting or set out on your own custom adventure. View Paddling Adventure package.
