Pin It
 
The Green Mountain state’s quaint villages, the essence of small-town New England charm, are poignant reminders of the simplicity of bygone days where the land was your companion and neighbors were family. 
 
They also form the centerpiece of this delightful biking vacation through southern Vermont. We’ll cycle through verdant rolling hills and lush valleys, discovering charming villages that seem frozen in time. We’ll cruise along pastoral back roads while passing quintessential Vermont features like North Chester's Stone Village, covered bridges and the beautiful Quechee Gorge. Along the way, we’ll learn about maple syrup production, or “sugaring,” and sample locally-made artisanal cheeses and award-winning craft beers. And we’ll balance our active days with relaxing nights spent in historic, picturesque and amenity-filled inns.
