The Essence of Yankee Life and Land
We’ve been biking all over Vermont for 33 years but we keep coming back to central Vermont. The scenery is varied and spectacular and the towns around which the tour is based are among the loveliest in all of Vermont.  The best of central Vermont has been distilled into one fabulous trip – the best biking routes, restaurants with the best chefs, the nicest inns, a hike with unsurpassed views, and visits to the most interesting sights.  Give us six days and we’ll give you the best of central Vermont and a bit of New Hampshire too. Come experience a New England bike trip that captures the essence of Yankee life and land.

Idyllic Vermont Bicycling
Great Freedom Adventures' Vermont bike tour meanders alongside idyllic dairy farms, past classic red barns on quiet country roads. Bike past pristine lakes and rivers with plunging waterfalls.  Test your courage by jumping into a swimming hole with water that feels like it was frozen yesterday.  Cross historic covered bridges and discover a dramatic 163’ gorge.

Fascinating Vermont Sites
On this New England bike trip, wind through picturesque Vermont towns, with white steepled churches surrounding town greens and explore a bit of New Hampshire along the way. Hanover, home of Dartmouth College, is bustling with youthful energy and blessed with New England charm.  The many fine shops and cafes wait to tempt you.  See master artisans at work at the renowned Simon Pearce glassblowing shop and sample the artisanal cheese at the Plymouth Cheese Factory, founded by President Calvin Coolidge’s father.  Tour the Calvin Coolidge State Historic Site, where Coolidge was sworn in as President by his father in 1923.  The homestead is exactly as it was on the night he was sworn in and in fact, the entire village of Plymouth Notch is largely unchanged since the early 20th century.

Vermont’s Only National Park
Visit Vermont’s Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historic Park and tour the farm and mansion, the boyhood home of George Perkins Marsh one of America’s first environmentalists. In addition to the beautiful architectural features, the mansion contains one of the largest private collections of Hudson River School art in the country. It is a gorgeous collection sure to take your breath away.
