Family canoe outing at Smugglers' Notch Resort
Come explore the beauty of VT and take in what the Lamoille River has to offer. VT Canoe & Kayak offers canoe, solo & tandem kayaks and paddleboard rentals. Choose one of the 3 different drop off locations upriver and let your adventure begin. Pack a lunch, bring a swimsuit and enjoy the many beaches along the way.

Prefer a guided tour? Choose from one of the many guided tours including our most popular Water & Wine Tour that takes you to the Boyden Valley Winery for an hour of tastings. Thinking something more sweet? Come along on our Maple Tour to the VT Maple Outlet where you’ll find yourself surrounded by maple treats. Need to escape and unwind? Try our SUP Yoga on a picturesque pond. Never paddled? Join our Morning River Kayak on a 4 ½ mile stretch of the Lamoille. What’s summer without Ice Cream? Join our Ice Cream Float and enjoy some Ben & Jerry’s ice cream on the River. Still thirsty? Paddle your way to the Smuggler’s Notch Distillery and enjoy a sip of their award-winning Spirits on our Kayak & Cocktails trip. The River is our playground, sharing it with you is our great privilege and pleasure. Call VT Canoe and Kayak at 802-644-8336 to book your paddling experience today!
