Vermont Canoe & Kayak

Vermont Canoe & Kayak does one river and one river well—the Lamoille! Take the short, scenic trip through Smugglers’ Notch to the other side of the mountain. Vermont Canoe & Kayak is located in the picturesque village of Jeffersonville right along the Lamoille River.

Offering rentals of canoes, solo and tandem kayaks and paddleboards. They’ll shuttle you upriver to any one of the three launch locations. Pack a lunch, fishing pole, bathing suit, even your dog and enjoy a leisurely self-guided paddle back to your car.
