The spectacular Northeast Kingdom of Vermont — decked out in vibrant autumn colors — is the setting for a hiking and canoeing adventure. Go up close on this unspoiled area’s natural environment, culture, customs and history amid New England’s fall foliage while hiking farm roads and trails. Hone your paddling technique and learn about the region’s unique ecology as you canoe pristine lakes and rivers. Learn why the National Geographic Society has named the Northeast Kingdom the “most desirable place to explore in the country.”


• Explore one of Vermont's largest organic vegetable farms, a working dairy farm and a maple syrup-making operation.
• Canoe a section of the Northern Canoe Trail and hike the boreal forest at the Silvio O. Conte National Fish and Wildlife Refuge.
• Join Vermont’s state loon biologist for an evening talk and slideshow about loon biology and conservation.
