Tour Overview

Lake Champlain, Vermont Bicycle Tours

Sojourn’s Lake Champlain, Vermont Bicycle Tours are recognized by Frommer’s as one of the ‘World’s 10 Best Bike Tours’ and by Forbes Travel Guide as one of the ‘Top 5 US Bike Tours.’ Given those accolades, we are confident that you too will find this trip to your liking.

Spring, summer, or fall, one of the top locations in the world for bicycling, is in Vermont – right outside the door of Sojourn’s headquarters in the Lake Champlain Valley. Witness Vermont’s endless shades of green during spring and summer or be enthralled by brilliant fall foliage in September and October.

Enjoy lightly traveled country roads that wind through classic Vermont landscapes. Spectacular Lake Champlain is nestled between Vermont’s ancient Green Mountains and the imposing high peaks of the Adirondacks. Gentle valley farmland provides miles of fabulous cycling and mountain foothills are close enough to provide challenging options for those who want them.

Follow country roads through centuries old farmland sprinkled with classic barns and Vermont’s signature Holstein cows. Ride through several of Vermont’s signature covered bridges. Enjoy stunning views of the Adirondack Mountains during a private cruise across Lake Champlain.

This is a true inn-to-inn Vermont bicycle tour as there are no vehicle transfers during the trip. Fly into Burlington, frequently listed as one of the top places to live in the US, and we’ll transport you the short distance to the start of the tour and return you to the airport at its conclusion.
