It's not a wild ride but a relaxing paddle down the Connecticut River. North Star did a good job shuttling us up river and setting us up for a good paddle downstream. Scenery is gorgeous. If the river is flowing fast, the '2-hour' trip is really about an hour on the water.

We love North Star and have been coming here for years! It's one of the best kept secrets in the area! North Star takes all the work out of a canoe trip and let's us enjoy the river. The river is beautiful and the kids love visiting the farm, my youngest loves all the horses.

My daughter and I who live in Cancun, Mexico, recently took one of North Star's river trips in kayaks. It was so much fun! We took our time going under the covered bridge, to the rope swing, onto the islands. There were eagles nesting, turtles. Drifting down between Vermont and New Hampshire with extraordinary views of Mt. Ascutney. What a... More

Scenic, easy going trip with our two dogs canoeing. Staff was very helpful and great with the dogs. River is clear, and saw horses running along the river. Great time!

We had a wonderful day out with our 2 younger children today (7 and 9). We rented one canoe and opted for the 1/2 day trip which took two hours. Great views along the CT river! There is even a place to pull up and hook your boat while your kids go NUTS on the rope swing. All of us... More

What was advertised was a half day trip which should last 1 1/2 to 2 hours OR a full day trip which lasts 3 1/2 to 4 hours and is 12 miles long with views of Mt Ascutney and Sumner Falls Rapids. We paid $100 (2 of us) for a full day trip. We didn't get the route described on... More

and one not quite there yet! The river current was just enough to keep us moving calmly so we could enjoy the scenery & silence. We stopped for lunch at a small island and had no trouble re-launching our canoe by ourselves. The staff were very helpful and encouraging, the equipment clean and functioning well. We recommend this trip to... More

Beautiful location on the Ct. River. The company makes the process very easy with drop offs to the launch area, navigation tips and info about wildlife you might see. Eqpt was great and we felt the experience was fun and affordable.
