Gain a fresh perspective on a beloved local treasure with this half-day multi-sport experience along the Fox River Valley. Join us as we paddle 5-miles of the beautiful Fox River to the historic town of St. Charles and maybe even catch a glimpse of a bald eagle. After lunch, we'll swap our paddles for peddles and ride our bicycles up the Fox River Trail to our start. Ideal for paddlers and cyclists alike, hone your kayaking and cycling skills while exploring the Fox River by land and by water. We do all the planning and packing. We can't wait to explore the Fox River with you!
