The scenery, quiet roads, farm-fresh food and outstanding attractions make Vermont one of the best places to bike. We offer you a wide range of easier to advanced-level tours here. And because Discovery Bicycle Tours has been based in Vermont since 1977, you also get the benefit of decades of our experience. Here are our current Vermont tour offerings:
Green Mountain Gravel Adventure Bike Tour | 6 days | Level: 4-Intermediate to Advanced. The first in a new style of touring for us called “Adventure Trips,” this tour offers a rustic experience with camping — plus challenging gravel and dirt terrain and epic climbs. You provide a gravel or mountain bike and camping gear, and we carry your luggage, provide a cook and leader, and set up the rides on gravel roads and paths.
Lake Champlain Islands Bike Tour | 6 days | Level: 2-Easier to Intermediate. Enjoy amazing views and rides around Lake Champlain. You stay the first two nights just a few hundred feet from Burlington’s waterfront and near the vibrant nightlife of Church Street. The next three nights you are a guest on North Hero Island, where you can relax in your Adirondack chair while enjoying the last rays of the sun reflecting across the lake onto the Green Mountains.
Quebec Eastern Townships Bike Tour | 6-days | Level: 2-Easier to Intermediate. Though most of this tour is in the province of Quebec, it starts and ends in northern Vermont. Bring your passport! Cycle through the beautiful French-speaking Eastern Townships where you are treated to gorgeous vistas, pretty villages, and excellent inns.
Woodstock Multisport Bike Tour | 6-days | Level: 2-Easier to Intermediate. On this trip, you are based in the picturesque village of Woodstock, located in central Vermont, in the shadow of the lovely Green Mountains. You explore the area using a variety of modes — pedaling, hiking, and floating. Enjoy mixing your adventure modes on this special type of tour.
Woodstock Self-Guided Bike Tour | 6-days | Level: 2-Easier to Intermediate. If you are more self-sufficient and able to take care of basic bike repairs on your own, this could be the Vermont trip for you! Stay in a well-located hotel in the picturesque village of Woodstock within walking distance of restaurants and attractions. You pedal & hike on the edge of the Green Mountains and float the Connecticut River (weather permitting).
Stowe Bike & Brew Weekend Bike Tour | 3-days | Level: 3-Intermediate. Enjoy a three-day weekend of challenging rides and a chance to taste world-famous Vermont craft beers in and around Stowe. Most of these departures are a Friday to Sunday … or opt for a mid-week vacation.
