“Experience the beauty of the trails, the quality of a guided ride, and the ease of a tour.”

We are striving to add a new dimension to biking in the area – more quality, more ease, a better ride.

Kingdom Tours was founded on the premise of quality and authenticity of place. Inspired by the lack of options of guided excursions in this incredibly beautiful area, Kingdom Tours was born to “fill the gap”. All tours were designed with the idea that an authentic experience creates happy customers. The Northeast Kingdom of Vermont is ranked the #1 North American destination by the National Geographic Society for their Geotourism Initiative. Kingdom Tours wanted to draw on that foundation and add to it: amplifying the local culture, environment, aesthetics and economy while fostering the idea that quality tours can enhance the area rather than detract from it.

Our tours make your entire experience riding the trails & surrounding areas effortless. No fumbling with a map to find your way, missing quality trails because you simply didn’t know, losing time on indecision or getting lost, or not knowing where to have the best, local meal. We solve those problems for you, and more. We have child care options, spa packages, bike and stay packages, and so much more.

We’re not your average bike tour.
