River Town Adventures Lansing
Where are we going today?
Who's ready for a bit of river adventure? We certainly are!
River Town Adventures in Lansing are the perfect way to experience the city from another point of view...the river!
Kayaking and canoeing is great for active kids to get out into that fresh air and take on a challenge. You can add some excitement into your family day out, or just take it easy and enjoy a relaxing experience out on the water.
You can see nature and wildlife without having the leave the city!
River Town Adventures offer a number of tours and experiences that the whole family can enjoy. If you want to take to the waters at your own pace, you can hire kayaks, paddle boards or canoes/tandem kayaks by the house. Then you can just paddle downtown, or around Moores Park.
If you want to try something a little further, the team can shuttle you to Kruger Landing and you can spend 2-2.5 hours making your way back to the market.
Feeling like you might want something a little more challenging? How about taking on the Grand River Adventures?
Journeys from 3 to 6 hours can be arranged, where the team can shuttle you to places as far away as Old Town or Jaycee Park Grand Ledge.
These daily adventures are perfect for the family to spend some time together, and the younger kids can enjoy some adventures where they can really challenge themselves.

We rented kayaks to watch the fireworks on the river in Downtown Lansing. As soon as we got to the park to launch off the guides were all very friendly and excited. You picked your kayak and off you went. I liked that we didn't have to stay as a group and go my own pace. Had a blast on the river, the fireworks were amazing. Everyone ended up watching them around each other. The paddle back was long though. I wish there was an option to dock at the market on the way back. Overall though was a great experience and the owners were very nice :)

Took the Zoo to the Market route and I couldn't believe I was still in Lansing. It was a beautiful trip and I felt like I was miles away. Will definitely use them again.
