Renowned as “New England’s Last Frontier” and “The Real Vermonters Vermont” the Northeast Kingdom is Vermont’s largest and least populated region. This leaves plenty of room for vast forests, pristine rivers, deep lakes, rambling roads, spectacular vistas, prominent peaks and still marshes. Quite simply, the Kingdom is a nature lovers delight.
In the Kingdom we enjoy and protect our many parks, forests and wilderness areas. These lands provide habitat for abundant wild and birdlife as well as rare plants. Wild and birdlife noted in the region include moose, black bear, deer, bobcat, coyote, badger, fox, fisher, falcon, loon turkey, quail and many other species. Some believe that the legendary Catamount (a Vermont species of cougar once assumed to be extinct) may still be in the area as well. Although several significant sightings have been reported in the past decade, the wildcat’s return has yet to be officially confirmed.
Whether you are drawn by bird watching, fishing, hiking, or a desire to explore, the Northeast Kingdom is rich in trails and vistas and throughout the region visitors are able to immerse themselves into the preserved wild lands and pristine waters. If exploring on your own is not for you and you would like the learn some forest secrets from those who know them well, a guide service can lead you to the best place to angle for trout, spy a falcon, track a deer, spot a bear, navigate a stream, or follow a lost logging road.
