Frequently Asked Questions
The Vermont Inn to Inn Walking Tour is a sought-after adventure by people from around the world. To date, walkers from more than thirty-seven countries have taken part in this simple and beautiful adventure!
You will arrive at one of the Southern Vermont inns the evening before the walk. The next morning after breakfast, you will be given a route map and snacks for the day. Your route will average approximately 10 miles. The Innkeeper will transport your bags to the next bed and breakfast, so that your bags are ready for you when you arrive later in the day. At the next B&B, you will have the opportunity to clean up, relax and enjoy a great evening meal (specialty dish) prepared by the Innkeepers. The next three days each offer another great country/gourmet breakfast, a different route leading to the next B&B, another great evening meal, and an experience of a lifetime!
A self-guided walking tour is the perfect way to enhance your vacations and romantic getaways in Vermont.
The walk is in a large 40+ mile circle, so your last days’ walk will return you to the first inn where your car is parked and awaiting your arrival.
