This tour includes a superb mix of lakeside cycling, rural farmland and small villages, and features stays at two of Vermont’s finest destination resorts. Our rides take us along the beautiful Champlain Valley, an area rich in history and defined by gently rolling countryside and panoramic views of the Green and Adirondack mountains. We include a delightful evening cocktail cruise on Lake Champlain, a leisurely guided kayaking adventure, and a ferry trip to historic Essex, New York. On the last two days we move “inland” to Stowe where we ride Randolph Road through Morrisville and picnic on the shores of Lake Elmore. Our final day includes a ride along the Stowe bike path including a short hike out to beautiful Moss Glen Falls.
This tour is designed to let you relax and enjoy your surroundings. We stay three nights at the Basin Harbor Club, a 700-acre resort that commands a stunning location on Lake Champlain. Here we can stroll the beach, take advantage of the full spa services, follow nature trails, play a round of golf, or just unwind. Our last two evenings we stay in the beautiful village of Stowe where we will find an incredible array of sophisticated shops and galleries, and where the immensely popular Green Mountain Inn treats us to a perfect blend of country ambiance and the modern comforts of an exceptional resort.
