Ready to see the Hudson River like you’ve never see it before? Join the Hudson River Valley Greenway for the Hudson River Paddle August 1-5. Register today!
The idea of a 75-mile Hudson River kayaking excursion from can seem daunting, even for seasoned paddlers. Luckily, the Hudson River Valley Greenway is going to take the planning and guesswork out of it by providing participants with an all-inclusive excursion. That means paddlers get lodging, meals, camping and kayaking gear (even the kayak!), shuttle service to area towns and attractions, and guidance provided by professional, ACA-certified kayak instructors along the way. And, if you register before July 15th, you get the entire excursion for $1,999, 20% off the original rate. All you to bring is your clothes, sleeping bag, personal items, and a burning desire to revel in the beauty of the Hudson River Valley.
Starting in Albany and ending in Poughkeepsie, the paddle follows the Hudson River Greenway Water Trail, a 256-mile navigable waterway extending from northern Saratoga County in the Adirondack Park and northern Washington County at the head of Lake Champlain, to Battery Park in Manhattan.
While the Hudson River Valley Greenway (HRVG) has hosted 10-day kayaking excursions in the past, HRVG is partnering with Hudson River Expeditions to revamp the experience into a shorter, all-inclusive camping/kayaking trip. All meals will be provided by Beacon-based eatery Stock Up, and ports-of-call include New Baltimore, Athens, Saugerties, Kingston, and Poughkeepsie. Paddling will be done in the mornings, while afternoons and evenings will be reserved for taking in the sights, connecting with follow paddlers, and relaxing. See the Hudson River the way it was meant to be seen: On the water.
Final day to register for the Hudson River Paddle is Sunday, July 15th, and registration is limited to 30 participants. Find out more about the itinerary, sample menus, and what to pack, visit hudsonriverpaddle.com. And, read about the paddle on Chronogram.com!
