Some of the Best Places to Enjoy Vermont River Tubing
Tweed River Tubing
Just a 15-minute drive from Killington, Tweed River Tubing in Stockbridge, VT, is located right on the White River and offers tubing trips from 9:30 AM to 3 PM. Their professional staff will give you an overview of your trip and how long it will take on that day, and a free shuttle will be waiting for you at the end of your journey. When it’s time for lunch, head to one of the picnic sites available for tubers and enjoy a snack surrounded by nature.
Vermont River Tubing Company
Also in Stockbridge, Vermont River Tubing offers inner tube rentals and self-guided trips for just for $10. You’ll take a scenic shuttle ride up to the river, and then you’re on your own! Guests can enjoy a lazy 3-hour float trip surrounded by lush foliage, rock formations, and wildlife, and will even encounter exciting patches of rapids. The water here is crystal clear and usually no more than a couple of feet deep, so you can take a refreshing dip whenever your heart desires.
Great River Outfitters
Great River Outfitters offers a number of options for self-guided day float trips on the Connecticut River in Windsor, VT. This area is known for its natural beauty and undisturbed wildlife, where nearly-extinct bald eagles nest along the river banks.

They also have all of the gear you need, so all you have to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride! Be sure to check their summer schedule for pricing.
