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
