- $47.50 for a 3.5-hour kayak trip of the Kinnickinnic River for two ($100 value)
A mere half hour from St. Paul, two can float down the Kinnickinnic River and take in the wildlife and absolute serenity. The river is surrounded by scenic bluffs, native prairie, and forests. It is home to rare and endangered plant species and plenty of open space and scenic vistas.
About 30 minutes from Minneapolis, the crew of Kinni Kayak runs trips on the Kinnickinnic River in River Falls, Wisconsin. The 3.5-hour excursions travel an 8-mile stretch of the river in a secluded, nonresidential area teeming with wildlife. For first-time kayakers, Kinni offers lessons with instruction as basic as how to sit in the craft and hold the paddle and as advanced as paddling techniques and fish grammar.
