Plan Your Trip
What makes ARO stand out from other whitewater rafting companies is that they offer trips on three different rivers throughout the North Country. Two trips are located in the beautiful Adirondacks, and one is just outside the park's border.
Hudson River - ARO's Hudson River Base in North River, NY, features a 17-mile wilderness rafting trip beginning on the Indian River and continuing through the Hudson River Gorge. The rafting season begins in April and runs through October. The spectacular scenery and fun rapids will give you the experience of a lifetime.
The Hudson River Base is also home to ARO's Adirondack Adventure Center - a family fun park with a zipline and ropes course, rock climbing, and more activities.
Moose River - The company's most intense whitewater ride is on the Moose River, which is only offered in spring (April). Due to the snowmelt, you can expect raging rapids that are recommended for more experienced whitewater rafters. The base for this trip is the Adirondack Lodge in Old Forge.
Black River - Just outside the Adirondacks is their Black River trip, which is based out of Watertown, NY. Riders will be challenged by Class II-IV rapids through the Black River Gorge. Many visitors take a drive to Watertown from Old Forge for a great day trip on the water.
