whitewater rafting is one of the many things you can do at the Adirondack Adventure Center

The Adirondack Adventure Center is a “MUST”

One of the most popular things to do at the Adirondack Adventure Center is to go white water rafting, but they offer far more than this. It’s also a great place to enjoy a lazy afternoon of river tubing and treetop and zipline adventures in the surrounding forest.

Guided whitewater rafting trips with Adirondack Adventure Center take place on the Sacandaga River, with 3.5 miles of dam-released Class II and III whitewater. It’s just the right mix of intense and relaxing and is suitable for everyone five and up.  You can expect the whitewater rafting trip to take 2 hours.

You don’t have to go “all-in” with a whitewater rafting adventure to get out on the water and have some fun, though. The Adirondack Adventure Center also provides a laid-back tubing adventure, a fantastic way to spend a hot summer day. Depending on local conditions, they’ll take you to a destination that offers calm, clear waters, with depths anywhere from 2 – 4 feet, and turn you loose for a quiet and fun day on the water.

If water sports aren’t your thing, you can also spend time exploring the surrounding forest at the Adirondack Adventure Center – they genuinely have something for everyone!  The treetop adventure course and aerial zip lines at Adirondack Adventure Center are a ton of fun, and it’s a great way to experience the tree canopy of the Adirondacks up close and personal. They also have a 63 feet freefall experience for the truly adventurous among us.
