The Hudson River Gorge is rated one of the Top 10 whitewater rafting runs in America. And no wonder! Experience the Hudson River...

  • Crystal clear
  • Clean
  • Alive
  • Powerful

Whitewater thunders alongside 500-foot granite cliffs, and through awesome rapids like Givneys' Rift, the Narrows, Little Nasty and Greyhound Bus Stopper. The Hudson River's whitewater is most powerful in the spring and fall; rafting is somewhat more moderate in mid-summer. Scheduled whitewater dam releases assure terrific rafting fun all season long.

Whitewater rafting releases from Lake Abanakee add extra water to the Hudson River even during our high adventure Spring season, making this a favorite rafting destination even for whitewater pros. Speaking of pros, our dedicated team of whitewater guides makes this a rafting trip that even first-timers can enjoy. Our rafting center is conveniently located alongside the Hudson River, on Route 28, in North River, NY, where a hearty dinner follows each day's rafting trip. So pick a Spring date for a whitewater ride on the wild side. Or come during the Summer or Fall to explore the Hudson River Gorge at a more relaxed pace. Either way, the unparalleled blending of wilderness scenery and western-style whitewater will make this one of your favorite whitewater rafting adventures ever!

The Aerial Zip Course

The Aerial Zip Course is a guided ropes course experience with a series of aerial obstacles including a zip line. The “Continuous Belay System” is the safest available for you and your family. The excitement builds as you harness up and climb to the "launching pad." Then it's into the air, soaring like an eagle, for a zippy, tree-top view. You'll go from zipping to climbing, swinging, and jumping through the ropes. Make this adrenaline-pumping ride a must-do adventure for you, your family and friends. Our staff will help you along the way. No experience needed.
