Umiak Outdoor Outfitters


Umiak Outdoor Outfitters has one of the best selections of canoes, kayaks, Stand-Up Paddleboards, and accessories in Vermont. We carry the finest boats and boards for all types of paddling including recreational, sit-on-top, whitewater, yoga, tripping, and touring for beginners, intermediates, and experts. Before every season, our expert staff tests hundreds of boats, paddles, boards, paddling accessories, and clothing and selects the best gear to offer our customers.

Not everyone is an expert paddler. We take the time to understand each customer’s needs and help them choose the right equipment. Before you buy a Canoe, Kayak, or Stand-up Paddleboard, test paddle in our demo pond right here at the Stowe store.

If you are already a boat or board owner and need custom outfitting or repairs, come see us! Whether you’re looking to make it more comfortable, replace your canoe’s gunwales or fix dents and holes, we can help. We’ve seen it all and fixed it all!


One of our favorite times of year is in the winter when we transition to a backcountry ski and snowshoe outfitter. Umiak Outdoor Outfitters carries an extensive line of Nordic, Backcountry Metal Edge, Telemark, AT Skis (alpine touring) and Snowshoes. We also have the ideal clothing and gear to provide comfort and performance for your backcountry adventures. Our expert tour guides are eager to share their knowledge of Vermont’s sacred backcountry and winter travel techniques.
