Paddling the Battenkill is a long established tradition. What better way to relax than a slow float down the river, accentuated by lovely evergreens, historic bridges, slate walls, and deep pools? Picnic, swim, see wildlife and relax as you float along with the pace of the current.

For rental craft on the Battenkill, we will drop you off and pick you up. If you own your own boat we offer shuttle services.

Battenkill Valley Outdoors tailors the length of your trip to your needs....the average trip is 2-4 hours of river time, however we can make it longer or shorter as you wish.
