Paddle the beautiful Housatonic River
in Northwestern Connecticut.
This section is a mixture of moving
flatwater and easy whitewater and is suitable for novice paddlers.
The famous Covered Bridge in West Cornwall marks the halfway point
and lunch is available at several places there. You may also bring a picnic
lunch (no glass bottles please!), and stop at one of the many scenic spots
along the river.
Choose rafting or canoeing and journey down a 10 mile
section of the Housatonic River.
Come to our shop in the morning
and a van will take you to Falls Village. When you've completed your journey 10
miles downstream at Housatonic Meadows Picnic Area we'll pick you up and bring
you back to our shop where hot showers are available.

Please keep in mind that rafts are more stable than canoes and are
recommended for groups with young children or weak-swimmers. (Great for
birthday parties, a free t-shirt for the birthday child!)
