“With a crew of costumed historic interpreters serving as the tour guide in the Fort’s battoe, participants will see Fort Ticonderoga’s magnificent walls in a whole new way, surveying the historic and beautiful sights on Lake Champlain, and hearing the stories of Ticonderoga and Mount Independence’s famous shoreline,” said Beth Hill, Fort Ticonderoga’s President and CEO. “Guests can paddle one of the Fort's canoes or bring their own to follow in the wake of five great battles. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for Fort Ticonderoga’s guests this summer.”

The unique combination of lakes, hills, mountains, and streams that surround Fort Ticonderoga made it a strategic location in the 18th century and make it one of North America’s most beautiful destinations today. Its history cannot be appreciated without an understanding of its landscape.”
