Visit the Champlain Valley of New York and Vermont. View the Colors and enjoy the Fall Foliage.
Our trips are centered north of Lake George, near Ticonderoga, New York in the Adirondacks. On the other side of the lake, in the Green Mountains our trips are located in Addison County near Middlebury, Vermont.
We have activities for all ages and fitness levels from novice to advanced.If you don't like to travel alone, join us and experience the outdoors with our knowledgeable guides.
We paddle and hike to a different location each day of the week. Our hikes lead to scenic mountain tops, or valleys with beautiful rivers and lakes.
We start our trip with a paddling and safety lesson. Then we will launch our canoes or kayaks to paddle around the lake to the trail. We stop for lunch while enjoying the autumn colors, immersed in the fall foliage. After lunch we continue our hike. On some hikes we stop to explore historic sites along the way. We hike through diverse habitats, and see a variety of plants, birds and animals.
In the afternoon we head back to our boats and paddle back across the lake to our starting point.
Children must be accompanied by an adult.
