Whitewater Rafting Through The Adirondacks

Have you ever been whitewater rafting? The Adirondack Park is home to rivers with great rapids, including the Hudson River, Moose River, and the Sacandaga River. Want to see what rafting is all about? Look no further.

Spring offers the best rapids in Upstate New York, as the runoff from snowmelt produces fast-moving waters throughout the Adirondack Park. The Hudson River Rapids are rated at Class IV and V when the water is really flowing. Summer and fall rafting trips are calmer, providing a beautiful ride where you can even duck off for a dip in the river occasionally! The following outfitters can provide you with the gear and instruction you're looking for.

Looking for something a little slower paced? Try a canoe or kayak trip!
