STL Riverfront Adventure
Channel your inner Huck Finn on the STL Riverfront Adventure, a unique and unforgettable tour of St. Louis via the largest river in North America!
The five-hour trip begins at a convenient location in downtown St. Louis, where you’ll meet your guides from Big Muddy Adventures and board a shuttle that will transport you to the put-in upstream. At the start of the trip, you’ll catch a glimpse of the iconic Chain of Rocks Bridge, part of the famed Route 66.
The trip takes you into the only non-navigable reach of the Mississippi River to a pristine island where you’ll enjoy lunch on a sandbar. You’ll also have the chance to spot wildlife and take a dip.
Continuing on to the port of St. Louis, the setting quickly transitions from natural to industrial. You’ll pass beneath five bridges, both historic and contemporary, while learning about notable landmarks and enjoying unique views of some of St. Louis’ oldest riverfront buildings.
The trip ends with an unbeatable view of the Gateway Arch and memories that will last a lifetime.
Remember, no paddling experience or special equipment is required – Big Muddy Adventures has got you covered! The outfitter will provide you with everything you need for the adventure and help you board one of its extraordinary voyageur canoes.
