You’ll have your choice of single or tandem kayaks. Children as young as 4 may ride at the front of a tandem.

Savor new scenery as you paddle back to VCK, where your E-bike is waiting for the ride back to your car, in Johnson. This combination tour offers two of the best outdoor activities in Vermont for a great adventure for the whole family. E-bike, helmet, canoe or kayak, life jacket and paddles are included.
