Every summer, tubing down the Battenkill River is on the top of my to do list! There are a couple of outfitters/rental shops to choose from. I prefer the tubes with the mesh bottoms, pack a cooler, throw in some lunch (no glass please) and you’ll be good to go! I’ve got some tips of what to bring for your relaxing River float, feel free to ask me:) They also offer kayak rentals along with transportation to and from the start & stop. BVO is an excellent summer adventure option. *Reservations required Offering rentals of canoes, kayaks, rafts, tubes, and bicycles Sales of canoes, kayaks, and gear for the outdoors Area hiking options
