If you’re looking for an adrenaline-filled adventure, whitewater rafting through the Hudson River Gorge is a great way to explore the outdoors and get your heart racing. The Hudson River Gorge is one of the most beautiful river gorges in New England, winding through miles of lush green forests with plenty of exciting rapids to navigate.
The Hudson River Gorge is located in the Adirondack Mountains in upstate New York. The river begins at Fort Edward and flows north until it reaches Lake Champlain at Whitehall. The gorge has been carved out by thousands of years of erosion and spans more than 40 miles. There are six sections of river ranging from Class I (the easiest) to Class V (the most challenging). The Upper section is known as the “Narrows” and it winds through eight miles of narrow gorges and rocks, making it ideal for those who want an intense experience. The Lower section is more suitable for beginners due to its gentler rapids.
