Kayak the Lehigh River


Explore the beautiful Lehigh River by kayak on an 8-mile float trip through calm pools and exhilarating rapids. Discuss the canals and railroads that used this path over the past 200 years, as well as ecology of the area. JTX guides take the guesswork out of navigating the river, showing you all the best spots and helping your group avoid the dangers.

Kayak rental, paddle and life vest are included in this package deal!  Shuttle (from the end of the trip) back to town is also included.

This kayak tour is available for groups of at least 3 people from May to October, weather and river conditions permitting. 


"We had a great time and have been talking about [the kayak trip] ever since... we will be back to take it all in again." JR & JP - NJ

"Getting some history out there was a bonus... the trip was a lot of fun!"  JW - SE PA
