Fall Foliage Tours in Stowe Vermont

Set Sail with Fall Foliage Tours in Stowe Vermont.

If you are wondering where to view fall foliage in Stowe Vermont, there may be no better place than by taking a trip along the water!

Residents know there are four seasons, yet for many visitors of the Green Mountain State, there are only two: ski season and “leaf peeping” season! A bevy of different fall activities in Stowe Vermont all center around taking in the majestic maples and stately oaks that set the landscape aflame! You will find fall foliage tours in Vermont by foot, car, bike, even plane. Not to be outdone however, we find that some of the best Stowe Vermont fall foliage tours occur by floating down the river, courtesy of The Fly Rod Shop!

Vermont Drift Boat Trips

Even though these trips run throughout the warmer months (and are a great way to get in some bass fishing), this style of scenically drifting down the flowing tributaries that crisscross the area can also be one of the best fall foliage boat tours in Stowe Vermont.

Reservations: (May – October)
Half Day (4hrs.) $375 for 2 people | Full Day (8hrs.) $450 for 2 people

Fall Foliage Scenic Boat Charters

True to its name, these guided tours on the Waterbury Reservoir offer some of the most resplendent views in the whole state!

Reservations: (Until Oct. 19)

Daily 1Hr Tours - $45 per person (2-6 people)

Be Prepared!

Unlike other forms of “leaf peeping”, there are some essentials to bring:

  • Appropriate attire – comfortable clothing, sunglasses, hat
  • Insect repellent
  • Provisions
  • Camera

Take a Bike Ride - The 5.3 mile paved trail is ideal for non-motorized recreation, making a bike ride the perfect choice while visiting the Stowe attraction. Take in the gorgeous mountain views as you cycle along the bike path in Stowe. Bike maintenance stations were recently installed, offering the necessary tools to perform any basic bike repairs from a flat tire to adjusting your brakes!

Enjoy a leisurely stroll - If looking for outdoor activities in Stowe, we recommend a leisurely stroll. It's a great way to work up an appetite before exploring the nearby restaurants that you'll find along the path. In fact, the restaurants, lodges and local business help make the bike path one of the most popular recreation assets in the area!

Fishing in Stowe is the “Reel” Deal

Fishing in Stowe

Fishing in Stowe is “Reel” Fun. Take a Catamount fish trip and discover that all good things come to those who bait!

The diversity of our state’s bodies of water makes Vermont a fisherman’s paradise. Yet instead of setting out on your own Stowe fishing excursion, outfitters such as Catamount Fishing Adventures will ensure your trip is stuffed to the gills with fishy-fun! With over 23 years of experience, the only problem you’ll have by taking a Catamount fishing trip in Stowe is you’ll be hooked and never want to leave!

There are plenty of fish in the sea…

And a variety of ways to catch them! Fly-fishing, spin-fishing and ice-fishing all have their unique attributes, and depending on the season, one style may speak to your fish-loving soul more than the others. Then there’s the time of day and duration of your Stowe fishing trip – eight hours may seem like an eternity now, but it’s more popular than the four hour trip for a reason! Do you plan on fishing in Stowe by canoe or motorboat, or roughing it by wading or staying on the bank? The fishing equipment is provided (including licenses), so all you need to do is choose your style and get ready to reel in the fun!

Now, that we’ve got you on the hook…

Remember the basics when it comes to adventuring in the great outdoors, as they’re extra important for a day on the water. Bring your best “adventuring” gear – sunglasses, hat, raingear, comfortable “earth-tone” clothes… Don’t forget the suntan lotion and bug repellant for the warmer months and plenty of drinks and snacks to keep your hunger from biting more than the fish!

Feel fully prepared for your Stowe fishing adventure? Don’t be a fish out of water! Book a room with us at the Green Mountain Inn. Our combination of rustic charm and modern comfort creates the perfect relaxing home base for any Stowe adventure!
