 All of our kayak tours include gear, kayak, instruction and guide.  There are no hidden costs. Mountain Valley Guides will celebrate our 14th year on the river this Summer.  Join us on our FAMOUS Sandbar BBQ or a sunset paddle or a paddle to Bannermans Island or the Palisades Cliffs.  So many tours to choose from so we went and added new tours for this year including Dennings Point and our soon to be famous Paddle & Pints from the Newburgh Waterfront.  Checkout our early season offerings in White Plains at Silver Lake.  This small calm lake is perfect for Introduction to Kayaking Classes, KICKS (Kids in Colorful Kayaks), Family Kayaking and kayak rentals.


Featured Trip


2016 was another great year of Hudson River Kayaking

Our Newburgh location was a sucess and our Paddles and Pints Tour was highly popular

Our new 12 Miler tour (Cornwall to Bear Mt) will certainly become one of our most desired tours.  Using the outgoing tide,this challenging took our paddlers through the Hudson Highlands on a most scenic trip.

Private Sandbar BBQs continue to be a hit and dates fill up quickly.

Our regular Sunset and Bannerman Island Tours offer a great  opportunity to get out on the river. Be sure to come paddle woth MVG in 2017.

Our 2017 schedule will be posted in March 2017


Thanks for a greate Year!
