Join an award-winning tour of the Lake Champlain Valley featuring Vermont’s prized country roads and picture book landscapes. Ride through historic covered bridges and explore quaint villages in one of the most beautiful states in the US. Enjoy stays in charming country inns and a classic turn-of-the-century lakeside resort. Cruise across Lake Champlain to ride fabulous routes on the opposite shore. Sample delicious treats at a local chocolatier and visit a gorgeous horse farm. History buffs will enjoy important sites including those of famous maritime battles and the Underground Railroad.

Spectacular Lake Champlain is nestled between Vermont's rolling Green Mountains and the high peaks of New York’s Adirondacks. Gentle valley farmland offers miles of fabulous cycling, and mountain foothills are close enough to provide challenging options for those who want them.This is a true inn-to-inn tour—there are no vehicle transfers except for short trips to and from Burlington, the most cosmopolitan city in Vermont, frequently listed as one of the top places to live in the US. Pre-and post-tour lodging is available at one of Burlington’s finest hotels, located just steps from Lake Champlain and the pedestrian marketplace.

The striking red, glowing orange, and vibrant yellow fall foliage colors lining your route are among the most spectacular in Vermont and all of New England. Enjoy lightly travelled country roads that wind through classic Vermont landscapes. Follow routes through centuries-old farmland sprinkled with classic barns and Vermont’s signature Holstein cows.

Each day various options are given for cycling so that you can choose the distance that suits you best. Please see the itinerary page for more details on the daily options.
