Electric bike rentals, kayak rentals, fishing guides, and other guided adventures! Nuts Outdoors has everything for your next outdoor Galena adventure.

Rent bikes and head down The Galena River Trail, tour historic Galena or head out of town to a local winery. The choice is yours and the hills are easy to conquer on their brand-new electric bikes.

Want to get on the water? Rent a kayak or Paddle Board and head out onto the Galena River or schedule a guided tour for a once in a lifetime experience going down the backwaters of the Mississippi River. They have regular 10′ long paddleboards that are suitable for one person but if you have a larger party, enjoy the Nuts Outdoors Party Board that is 18′ long and suitable for up to 10-people!

Are you nuts about fishing? Let one of the local guides take you to some of their favorite fishing holes. Nuts Outdoors can help you hook some big Catfish, pull some smallmouth bass out of local streams or help you get some trophy-sized Tiger Muskie.

If you have a group and you want to do something different, guided adventures are available. Guided trips include biking, kayaking, camping, fishing and wildlife viewing.

Pet-friendly: Small dogs are a great ride along in the kid's tow-behind trailers. Dogs are also welcome in the shop.

Hours: 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. Year round, 7 days a week
