Summertime can be jam-packed with activities, vacations, weddings, and more. Maybe you love to hike, kayak, canoe, go rafting, and river tubing or you want to try SUPaddle Boards (Stand Up Paddle Boards) but don’t know how or where to start?

It’s time to pack up the camping gear and get out in the rejuvenating New England air. Welcome to Great River Outfitters & the Path of Life Garden. This incredible outdoor getaway literally offers it all. Located next to the Path of Life Sculpture Garden, this adventurous outdoor getaway has something for all ages and skill levels and includes a ticket to visit the Path of Life Sculpture Garden with each visit.

During the summer and fall, they offer float trips for canoes, kayaks, and stand-up paddleboards (SUP), rafts, and river tubes. They have the equipment for individuals, families, and groups. Their Deluxe three-room tents allow you, your friends, and family to sleep inside of the Path of Life Garden or next to the Connecticut River.

Are you looking for a romantic weekend away? Try kayaking under the stars, Bonfire at the Drift Wood Band, delicious selections from The FOOD Artisan Eats, and your favorite wine.

Considering something more outdoorsy? Rent a tent or bring your own to one of their island campsites and wake up to wildlife. No need to excuse yourself behind a tree or wake up feeling grungy. The campsites even come with solar showers, port-o-potties, and firewood.

Grab your hiking shoes or rent a Fat Tire Bike to explore the 300+ acres surroundings, which includes quiet and intriguing trails, fields, and woods. These paths are open for year-round exploration. Imagine yourself on a 4 or 8-hour scenic float or fishing trip or experiencing the breath-taking fall foliage from a completely new river view perspective.

So grab your outdoor attire because your next nature adventure is waiting for you.
