A tour and tasting at two local spirits manufacturers To offer tour and tasting experiences of Charlottesville area businesses we have partnered with King Family Vineyard, Pro Re Nata Brewery, and Ragged Branch Distillery . All trips will begin and end at Boar’s Head Resort. Above all we want you relaxed, so all transportation, tour and tasting fees will be handled by us. Each of the locations will give you a tour of their facilities, with a tasting either before or after. On these tours they will go over how they make their beverages and answer any questions. Food Ragged Branch has a rotating menu of farm to table meals, and Pro Re Nata has food trucks, with availability on their website. Whereas King Family only offers light snacks they do allow outside food. If you would like, Boar’s Head can also order you a sandwich through a locally sourced gourmet sandwich shop.

This guided Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) adventure is a great time for any age or skill level. Spend the afternoon on our gorgeous, local mountain lake learning the sport of Stand Up Paddle Boarding or SUP for short. SUPing is a growing sport among water lovers and boarding enthusiasts. What started in the Pacific Islands as a means of transportation has come to the mountains of Virginia. Paddleboards are a wider, more stable version of an ocean surfboard that allows users to easily maneuver the board through the water using a longer version of a rafting paddle. Our paddleboarding adventures are designed for paddlers of all ages and skill levels, including first timers! All Transportation and equipment is provided.
This guided paddling clinic is a great time for any age or skill level. Create fun memories to last a lifetime! Until recently, traditional kayaks were best suited for navigating ultra-challenging white water rapids. Today, a new breed of wider, more stable boats has made kayaking a sport that can be practiced by just about anyone. In our paddling clinic, you’ll discover for yourself the thrills of recreational kayaking. Grab a friend and master the two-person kayak — or go solo and feel the speed of a sleek Perception Kayak. Who knows what adventures the river might hold…you might catch a glimpse of an osprey fishing for lunch or share a scenic view with a herd of deer foraging on the side of the river. It’s a great retreat to nature — relaxing and refreshing. This 3 hour clinic covers the basics of river safety and paddling on the mild waters of a local lake or river. Our large selection of boats and the ability to safely handle participants of most ages makes this a favorite trip for families staying at The Boar's Head Resort or visiting Charlottesville, VA. All necessary equipment and transportation are included.
