“Snowmobile Adventure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

Experience a special tour out into the beauty of the backwoods of Vermont's pristine Northeast Kingdom. Guides are experienced and will provide a snowmobile suited to your experience level. After going over the safety requirements and 'rules' for a safe experience, you will spend several hours enjoying the beauty of the landscape and what winter has to offer.

“Hightlight of the Vermont Vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

Early 9/13 my son and I took an ATV tour with NEK Adventures. Phil our guide was a very pleasant person and put us at ease. Phil knew the trails backwards and forwards and he also knew where the best stops were for taking pictures. We had a wonderful time and can't wait to go again on a longer tour. I'm 81 years old so don't think this is only for young people
Thanks Phil
Joe C.

“BEAUTIFUL VIEWS”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

We did this tour while in Vermont and I'm so glad we did. Our guide Phil was great, very down to earth and easy going. The views of the area were amazing! We really enjoyed this tour and would recommend it as well.

“Worth every penny”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

This was an outstanding experience and was one of the highlights of our Vermont trip.

We signed up for the private family tour, 4 adults from 29 to late 60's and a 7 and 9 year old. Phil was fantastic, he put us all at ease immediately and gave us 2 wonderful hours. I suggest getting there a few minutes early to get the paper work out of the way, that way you can jump right in.

After signing the forms, Phil gives a training session. You get your helmet fitted and he then explains the controls for the ATV. Its very simple to control and after going over a few things you hop on and make a few loops around the parking area to get your feet wet.. Phil gives some great suggestions, so listen carefully and ask questions.

We then took off single file and saw a lot of the amazing scenery the NEK is famous for. One highlight was the memorial orchard (http://memorialorchard.com/lodge.html) and the lodge they are building, everything there supports ALS research. Absolutely beautiful place. There were some more tremendous views and a nice jaunt down a forest ATV road (quite exciting!). All of us enjoyed every moment. Phil is a great guide and we felt safe the whole time.

When we return to Vermont we will be sure to stop here again. Make sure you do too!

“Great Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013 via mobile

I took my husband and 11 year old son on the 4 hour ATV tour. We had a great time! Not only was riding fun but we wanted to see the VT scenery. We're staying at the Stowe Mountain Lodge and the drive over was not a big deal at all. We will definitely be back next year!
