Cycling Through Fall Foliage in Vermont
Operator: Vermont Bicycle Tours
This bike trip takes you inn-hopping in classic New England, past farmlands on country roads, in a valley between the Green Mountains and the Adirondacks. Trip leader Gerry Slager has lived in Vermont for 30 years; he guides leisurely excursions on the shoreline of Lake Champlain and along paths that wind in and around the lake’s islands, with time out to kayak, explore walking trails, or simply take in the spectacular fall colors. You’ll stop by the Shelburne Museum of art and Americana, as well as the Morgan Horse Farm and the college town of Middlebury, where you’ll visit a workshop and store run by a fifth-generation pewtersmith.
Cost: $1,395–$1,745 double occupancy, six days.
