Multi-Day Canoe Trips on the Shenandoah River

Explore the South Fork of the Shenandoah River


Our multi-day canoe trips are for adventurous folks looking for the ultimate river and camping experience. Pack your gear and food, arrive at our office and let us handle the details as we shuttle and outfit you for your river tour.  Camping options include rustic styles in the backcountry of George Washington National Forest, numerous riverside campgrounds with facilities, or our private Skymont Lodging Facility.

Come out and relive history as you navigate the South Fork over the course of your multi-day trip as they did in the times of earliest recorded Valley history. Please note that customized shorter distance trips may be required in low river levels. As with all our trips it’s not the amount of time you take to complete your trip, it’s the mileage.  Customers are allowed to complete their trip at their leisure within our hours of operation.

Important Information

Please note that canoe trips are not guided and the rates are per watercraft. You may put up to three people in a canoe at a time, but two people is strongly recommended. Two people are recommended in a canoe for multi-day trips. Rates do not include 5.3% Virginia sales tax.
