Welcome to BattenKill Canoe
Greetings and welcome to BattenKill Canoe. It is especially gratifying
to renew old friendships with returning guests, and exciting to meet
others for the first time. Our commitment to run absolutely the best
trip possible remains the same as it was 24 years ago when we ran our
first trip. Our goal has remained the same: to explore remote interesting
places by canoe, to remove you from the stresses of everyday life, and
to make real that landscape of adventure that we carry within us.
Adventure travel takes us out of our ordinary world, and carries us
to new places to explore different cultures, showcases for human creativity
and natures boundless garden. But there is more to travel than
just traveling. We must learn to love life, to understand other cultures
without prejudice, to walk in the sun, and to enjoy and rock the cradle
of life. Traveling by canoe and foot off the roads allows us to experience
life through different eyes.
And perhaps our greatest duty as outfitters is to inspire fellow travelers
to become involved in healing our host mother earth, and to assist
nature in rebuilding her exquisite beauty. We must all help in the healing
process. It requires that her garden of life be kept in glorious bedlam
not paved and bottled, not cut and pruned, but growing in sweet
I am especially pleased to offer two new trips this year: Rica Nica, Canoes and Coffee Nicaraguan style. . It is the combination of vision and experience that
blends together to make a well-crafted trip that you will enjoy.
If you are thinking about your first trip with us, or planning a return
engagement simply give us a call and we will be pleased to share our
vision. Sharing our passion for great rivers, interesting people and
places is what BattenKill is all about. Join us on a river, somewhere,
sometime, but soon.
Peace and all the best.
