Snow Hill Road Bridge, County Road 13
Join us for this 2 part adventure in the Seminole forest, just 30 minutes north of Orlando.
Get ready for kayaking and mountain biking in one of the areas most beautiful forests. This is “real Florida,” and something you will definitely want to experience while staying in our great state. Did you know Florida is one of the most bio-diverse eco-systems in the world? Yep! On this tour you will get to see the giant gators, and river life of the Econolockhatchee river, and then mountain bike your way through some fun single tracks in the ancient Little Big Econ Forest.
Your guide will pick you up at your hotel (I-Drive and Lake Buena Vista only) between 8:30-9am. Self-drive guest must arrive to Seminole State Forest by 9am. Then we head to the ancient Seminole State Forest, also called “Little-Big Econ Forest.”
We start our day kayaking down the Econolockhatchee River, once home to Florida’s Native American Seminole tribe. Use your imagination as you begin to paddle your kayak down this famous blackwater river. You will be quickly be transported back in time to remote unspoiled Florida. Look on the river bank for mounds – they could be “Indian mounds.” These were made by Native Americans as a type of storage area along the river, so they would have a rest stop while they navigated these waters on the way to the St. John’s River. As you paddle, be on the lookout for alligators, bald eagles, blue herons and deer.
We stop for a picnic lunch (included) along the river before finishing our kayaking early in the afternoon. After a short break, it’s time to peddle into the outback of the Little Big Econ Forest. Explore some of Florida’s best single tracks, as your ride through the forest, over bridges, through creeks. This is a fun 2-hour ride that finishes out our day.
BK’s Pedal and Paddle tour from Orlando is the only one of its kind and one you should not miss if you want to have a “real Florida” adventure!
Daily departures at 10am. Self-driving guests must arrive at Seminole State Forest by 9am.

6/27/22, went on evening 3hr tour, Ruben & Bjorn were our guides! Highly recommend this tour as well as guides. Amazing trip truly a phenomenon to see the Bio light up all around you!! Guides were very knowledgeable about Bio and how it works in addition to wildlife & preservation. We got up close and personal with Manatees while they breached right next to the kayaks playing all around us. Guides were energetic and made the tour a lot of fun & laughs.
Great job money spent well worth the trip!!

Oh my gosh - this was AMAZING! We caught the bioluminescence on a '5' night (rated 1-5), so we really got to see it well. The tour guide was very knowledgeable, and informative, as well as friendly. We had eight family members in our party, so we took the raft. My only complaint, which is something that is inherent in using a raft, is that you have to sit on the edge facing in, then row and try to look over your shoulder to see the bioluminescence. For me, that got tiring, and my neck hurt after awhile. I wish we could have just sat on the seats in the raft. BUT - it was still wonderful. I would like to do it again, but in a kayak. A++++ adventure! We live in Kansas, but I can't wait to go do some other nature tours with BK Adventures again. Jordan, in the orange shirt was the 'captain' of some of the tours 🙂 Our ages were 6, 8, 11, 13, 40, 41, 42, 69. We did this after a day touring the Kennedy Space Center on July 21st, 2023.
