We have incredible access to the beautiful Connecticut and Deerfield Rivers, and we plan on getting out onto the water as often as we can! You can spend a half or a full day canoeing or kayaking along some of our favorite stretches of river from Vermont to Connecticut. And, like every Adventure East experience, we provide the equipment/information necessary to have as much hassle-free fun as possible.

Enjoy an evening paddle along the Connecticut River bathed in the light of the stars and the full moon as we make our way from Sunderland to the Hatfield Boat Ramp.
This 6 - mile excursion is already quite gorgeous, but paddling under the stars at night makes this experience even more special. There's nothing quite like the sights and sounds of the Connecticut River on a warm summer night, lit by the moon and surrounded by the sounds of nocturnal wildlife.
