Find best places to go Whitewater Rafting,
where to stay, who the local experts are and where to find them!

Each spring, the streams and rivers build up a head of water from the snows melting down from the mountains. This water pours into the rivers and streams that can cause some pretty fast running water. Long time ago, Lumberman would take advantage of the high waters and drive logs to the market. The logs, some stretching over 20 miles long, would roar down the river on a high spring freshet. Today there are no more logs but the ones that have fallen in, but there is the challenge and adventure of Whitewater Rafting, with 12 man rafts, canoes, and even kayaks.

What is Whitewater Rafting? You put on a wetsuit, climb aboard a raft, grab a paddle, and shove off. Between hanging on, paddling for dear life, getting soaking wet, and yelling your head off, somehow you survive ... You've taken a "Adirondack Sleigh Ride" lived to tell about it, and loved every breathtaking minute of it!

Individuals with little to no experience can enjoy a wilderness rafting trip by taking advantage of the services offered by outfitting companies listed below. They will supply you with everything you need! Rafts, Life jackets, wet suits, lunches or snacks, plus shuttle transportation to and from the base camp. These outfitters offer the safest, most challenging, and enjoyable whitewater rafting trips imaginable. Outfitters will also make arrangements for meals and overnight accommodations should you wish to stay for awhile.

Whitewater Rafting trips are designed to emphasize learning, paticipation, and enjoyment and can vary from easy excursions to wild adventures. It is best to discuss the desired trip with your outfitter to ensure a comfirtable and pleasurable adventure!

Adventurous people in good health will have no problems rafting. The outfitters feel swimming ability is a must! They'll also give you paddling instructions before each trip.

Depending on the time of year and the waterway selected, you can enjoy rafting from a mild mannered river wild, turbulent sea of heart-stopping adventure. Check the outfitter of your choice on what is best for you and your ability.
