Nuts Outdoors

When searching for outdoor adventure, look no further than Nuts Outdoors! Located just a couple blocks from the river, it's an easy walk from Aldrich Guest House to enjoy kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, or a guided fishing trip on the Galena River. If dry land is more your style, they also rent bicycles and electric bikes to make sure you don't tire yourself out too much!

Bicycles and E-Bikes

Kayaks not your thing? No worries! Nuts Outdoors also rents bicycles and electric bikes. There are lots of hills in Galena so the e-bikes are an excellent way to make sure you have that extra little ‘assist' when you need it. Take a ride down the Galena River Trail to Chestnut Mountain and ride the chair lift to the top. You can choose to add either the Chestnut Mountain Adventure Package (which includes a Soaring Eagle zipline ride, unlimited Alpine Slide rides, and one round of miniature or frisbee golf) or you can choose a Mississippi River cruise where you'll enjoy an amazing view and learn a lot about the history and geography of the Mighty Mississippi (cruise available weekends only).

Kayaking and SUP-Boarding

For those looking to enjoy the Galena River, there are several trips which add a bit more adventure. Novice paddlers can choose the 2-hour paddle from Buckhill to Galena where the water is gentle and all you need to do is float along with the current. If you're able to navigate some small yet exciting rapids and up for a 4-hour trip, check out the Council Hill to Galena route. And lastly, for a full 9-hour adventure, the New Diggins to Galena trip gives you the day to enjoy the river, stop for lunch (pack your own!), and to fully appreciate what the river has to offer.
Last but certainly not least, Nuts Outdoors offers custom adventures tailored to what you and your group are looking for! This is perfect for family get-togethers, friend's reunions, or any other reason you feel like booking all 5 rooms at Aldrich Guest House.
