We had a wonderful time with Smugglers Notch Cycling!  Dean took us out for some beautiful scenery on the Island Tour and sailing on the water. We will definitely come back again!

I am sure your experience with Smugglers Notch Cycling will be something you’ll re-book immediately for next year,.. My personal suggestion: the Lake Champlain Islands Tour … but they’re all spectacular!

Tour Areas

Vermont Countryside

The countryside surrounding Stowe and Smugglers Notch is some of the most beautiful for riding in all of Vermont, with green rolling hills, farms with old red barns, grazing cows, twisting rivers, storybook towns and unrivaled mountain views.

Lake Champlain Islands

The Lake Champlain Islands are South Hero, North Hero, Isle La Motte and Grand Isle, and has been aptly named The Beauty Spot of Vermont. Ride next to the water with views of Vermont’s beautiful Green Mountains or New York’s amazing Adirondacks.

Green Mountain Climbs

 The Green Mountains of Vermont offer some incredible ascents including Middlebury Gap, Appalachian Gap, (with a spectacular summit view of Lake Champlain), and also, both sides of the challenging and breathtaking Smugglers Notch.
