Kayaking and paddling has become one of the most popular outdoor activities in Vermont, even for those who have never done it before. The best part is that there is a river, lake, or pond offering a level of paddling for everyone. There are awesome Class II and Class III waters here; but most choose Class I flat water kayaking allowing for a fun combination of good paddling, wildlife viewing, and exploring pull-offs along the way.
