They are conveniently based right at the bottom of 13th Lake Road and on the Hudson River. Plan a visit during one of their theme weekends for an extra-fun and adventurous experience! After a whirlwind of whitewater rafting exhilaration, their friendly staff will be more than happy to share their in-depth knowledge of the best local attractions and dining. You’ll fall in love with the majestic Hudson River Gorge as your guide steers your group of fearless rafters through the colorful Adirondacks. Your tight-knit team will drift through the wilderness, past towering cliffs and beautiful waterfalls on class III rapids as you make your way from the put-in back to North River NY. Adirondack Adventures has professional, licensed whitewater rafting guides that will make sure you have an enjoyable and satisfying journey from start to finish! 

Whitewater Rafting in North River NY

Whitewater rafting near North River NY is a unique experience because of how our neighboring water releases function. Regular releases from the Lake Abanakee Dam make whitewater rafting on the Indian River possible. Thanks to the dam releases, rafts can navigate the Hudson River Gorge throughout the summer as well as during the spring when water is high thanks to the snow melt. Several whitewater rafting companies run trips between the Lake Abanakee Dam and North River NY on the Hudson. The Hudson River Gorge is the seasonal home to thousands of exciting whitewater adventures. You’ll splash through giant rapids, witness breathtaking foliage at the Blue Ledges, and conquer your fears with a big smile on your face.
