Family owned and operated Berkshire Canoe Tours take your family and friends for a fun guided canoe tour down the HousatonicRiver. Enjoy a fun and relaxing day floating in a river and looking at the beautiful Berkshires and all the nature around it. Make sure to bring a camera on this trip to capture the wildlife and plants that surround you as you canoe. Some things you might see on the guided trip are red-tail hawks, owls, Canadian geese; tall cottonwoods, sycamore, beavers, turtles and much more!
The trip lasts about 1 ½-2 hours. The guides are well trained and professional, so if you have never been on a canoe or paddled they can teach you everything you would need to know for the day. The cost is 50 dollars for an adult and 30 dollars for a child; it is suitable for both young children and adults. The price includes the safety gear; all they ask is that you dress appropriately for weather along with sunglasses, sunscreen and hats.
The trips are operated off of Deckers Landing which is located on New Lenox Rd. in historic Lenox, Ma, just a quick drive from us here at the Yankee Inn. They do recommend making reservations to schedule in advanced, the tours run several times a day.
