We have incredible access to the beautiful Connecticut and Deerfield Rivers, and we plan on getting out onto the water as often as we can! You can spend a half or a full day canoeing or kayaking along some of our favorite stretches of river from Vermont to Connecticut. And, like every Adventure East experience, we provide the equipment/information necessary to have as much hassle-free fun as possible.

Upcoming Paddling Trips

Thursday, 09/30/2021

Unwind after work with an easy, evening paddle.

This is a gentle loop from the Sunderland Boat Ramp access around Sunderland Islands Wildlife Management Area - First Island and Second Island. This excursion is a good introduction to upstream paddling and exploring a mid-river island where there are nesting bald eagles.

This outing will be a 9 mile paddle from the Poplar Street access downriver to the Sunderland Boat Ramp. It will include a peek up the Deerfield River and exploration of some islands and sandbars which will provide us with excellent potential opportunities for birdwatching as bald eagles and other birds of prey can be often be spotted on this route.

 

Saturday, 10/02/2021

Spend the day with us on an outing at Lake Warner that will take us paddling and hiking, followed by an opportunity to enjoy some of the valley's local food and craft ciders.

After canoeing across the lake, we'll have a short and lovely hike to Carr's Ciderhouse where we will have a tasty lunch and a cider tasting.

Sunday, 10/03/2021

A leisurely loop paddle reminiscent of the old fashioned “Sunday Drive” from the Sunderland Boat Access up around the islands nestled between Mounts Toby and Sugarloaf is a great way to connect with nature and center yourself for the week ahead. With peak New England fall foliage on display, this is an ideal outing for leaf peepers looking for a new take on a beloved fall tradition.
