Hudson River Description: 

The Hudson River Gorge, located in Upstate New York’s Adirondack Mountain region, is the perfect place for your next whitewater rafting adventure! Experience the source of the mighty Hudson River as she was meant to be – crystal clear, clean, alive and powerful, as her whitewater thunders alongside incredible 500-foot granite cliffs, and through awesome rapids like Givneys’ Rift, the Narrows, and Greyhound Bus Stopper.

 

Whitewater rafting is possible thanks to dam releases from Lake Abanakee, which adds extra water to the Hudson River all season long. If you’re looking for a more intense experience featuring the wildest possible ride down the Hudson, schedule your adventure during the Spring season. For an exciting yet slightly tamer whitewater rafting experience on the Hudson, book your trip during the Summer or Fall.

Program Details: 

Just a few of the reasons Fort William Henry Hotel & Conference Center is called a Classic Lake George Destination Hotel.

 

This historic Adirondack hotel is located on a spacious 18-acre estate spanning the entire southern shore at the head of Lake George. First-time guests are delighted to discover the stunning location combined with beautifully landscaped grounds and open space just a “stone’s throw” from the lake. Returning guests savor the gracious service, fine accommodations and world-class views of the many islands of Lake George and the surrounding Adirondack mountains.
