What You'll Get
The best part of canoeing is the exhilaration of exploration, up until the point when one realizes the difficulty of paddling through pudding in the bathtub and must look at one's self in the mirror. Take to actual rivers with today's Groupon: for $19, you get a full-day canoe rental from Wisconsin Canoe Company (a $39 value), located in Spring Green. Your rental includes a Holy Cow canoe, life vests, paddles, and drop-off and pickup shuttle service.
With canoe rental and drop-off service from Wisconsin Canoe Company, a nature adventure through the Lower Wisconsin River is just a metaphorical canoe-length away. Upon arrival, the friendly staff will outfit visitors with a Holy Cow canoe, made from light-weight materials to make for an easy-handling ride on-route to destinations including Otter Creek, Ferry Bluff, Arena, or Spring Green. The final stretch of the Wisconsin River boasts a pristine aqua sanctuary, protected from development on either side. Spend all day cruising at the pace of the sun and soak in the sights, smells, and telepathic tendencies of unspoiled wilderness. With an average depth of five feet, the sand-bottom river hosts sandbars ideal for relaxing breaks, camping (no permit required), and transforming regular mosquito attacks into beautifully serene mosquito attacks.
River-tamers can even check Wisconsin Canoe Company's website ahead of time for current river conditions, providing info on depth, strength of the current, water temperature, number of farmers playing banjo on the side of the river, and precipitation.
