There are a number of great places in Vermont where you can ride along or around Lake Champlain. Lake Champlain is about 120 miles long with about 435 square miles of surface water. It’s 12 miles wide at its widest point and there are 587 miles of shoreline to discover. All of this shoreline creates fantastic opportunities for Vermont bike tours!
There are 71 discrete islands in Lake Champlain and the largest are known as the Lake Champlain Islands. The Lake Champlain Islands run up the center of the northern part of Lake Champlain and consist of South Hero, Grand Isle, and North Hero Islands. These islands are known in Vermont as great bike tour destinations. In fact, the New York Times named the Lake Champlain Islands area as one of their top 3 favorite bike tour destinations!
