Tour Overview

Stowe, Vermont, Fall Foliage Bike Tour

This unique trip begins with three days of riding through small towns and covered bridges in the Lake Champlain Valley before it winds east through the Green Mountains to Stowe. Combining valley and mountain regions ensures peak foliage viewing during your trip. Experience the best of fall foliage, riding a select collection of Vermont’s most scenic country roads.

Ride through several of Vermont’s timeless covered bridges and visit the Old Round Church. Sample homemade cider and donuts at a local orchard. Enjoy a taste of one of Vermont’s famed IPAs from a small craft brewery or sample award-winning vodka from the top distiller in the US. Fill the support van with woolens from a family mill that’s been in operation since the mid-1800s. Bike the narrow route through the cliffs of Smuggler’s Notch, so named for its role in the passage of illicit goods during Prohibition.

Accommodations feature quintessential award winning Vermont country inns and a Vermont luxury resort. This trip offers an exclusive and exquisite stay and dinner at The Inn at Shelburne Farms (However, for the trip starting Oct 7th, 2018 we will stay at Topnotch Resort & Spa at Stowe instead of The Inn at Shelburne Farms for this night. This will allow us to explore deeper into peak Vermont Foliage). Unwind in the casual comfort of a historical Vermont treasure and luxuriate in an intimate hillside oasis. Vermont has an extensive network of organic and local food producers and tour meals will include the freshest of these local ingredients.
