Hudson River Rafting


A magnificent wilderness experience in the Adirondack Mountains of New York State, the Hudson River is Class III-IV+, adrenaline pumping excitement.  The Hudson River Gorge is 15 miles of heart-racing rapids, ledge drops, chutes, waves and crystal clear water spraying overhead all while cutting through 500' rock wells.  For a wild ride the Spring is your time to go.  For a more relaxed trip the Summer and Fall is ideal.  With Lake Abanakee providing the Hudson with water all season and the Adirondaks providing magnificant views, there's no doubt the Hudson is a great adventure anytime.  Your trip includes a River Snack and an apres rafting dinner.  Add camping, ziplining and paintball for outdoor fun!
