Stowe, Canada, Caspian Lake, Greensboro and Vermont’s famous Northeast Kingdom…this tour has it all! We begin near the sophisticated village of Stowe and then cycle through Smuggler’s Notch into the meandering Lamoille River Valley. We then explore Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom, the least settled and most rural, untouched corner of the state. We parallel the Missisquoi River as we cycle part of a rail trail, and enjoy a wonderful mix of sunny farmland, shaded forest and quiet wetlands. We bike through international customs as we wend our way into Canada (must bring your passport!). Here we have lunch in the historic village of Frelighsbugh and then pass along the foothills of Mount Pinnacle, through beautiful apple orchards and farms, and then back into the United States.
We also include visits to some quintessential Vermont villages such as Montgomery, Greensboro, and Irasburg; stop at some wonderful old-fashioned stores; have a beautiful, optional ride to lake Willoughby; and include a tour of the Cabot Creamery, “makers of the best cheddar in the world”.
