Itineraries: Quick Getaways on the Northern Forest Canoe Trail

By Kate Williams

If you’re like me, you’re not the kind of traveler who ever thought you’d follow an itinerary. Itinerary, you ask, what’s that? Itineraries tell us where to go, what to do, where to stay, where to eat, etc. Doesn’t sounds very adventurous, you may think. While itineraries lack that “what-unexpected-ups-and-downs-might-we-experience?” sensation, they make up for it in convenience. It’s the convenience of not needing to plan ahead too much, and not needing to think too hard while you’re out adventuring. And for families in particular, itineraries are perfect. The nuts and bolts of where you’re going are provided, so that parents and kids can simply focus on having fun. If your time is limited, you’ll find itineraries equally helpful, as they provide short getaways that don’t require too much advance preparation. Have I piqued your interest? If you need more convincing, consider the themes itineraries provide, and the allure reflected in their names: Missisquoi Pastoral Paddle; Northeast Kingdom Romantic Paddling Getaway; Montgomery Marvels: Mountains & Missisquoi; Androscoggin River Adventure; Connecticut River Valley Wildlife Meander. Personally, we can’t wait to test these all out ourselves. Join us, and let us know that you think.
