ARO is starting their 38th spring season on the Hudson and Moose Rivers on April 14th. Our Hudson River trips begin at our (new in 2017) 18 acre Hudson River Adventure Center, in North River, NY. Our center, which also has an aerial ropes course, and plenty of room for your groups post trip activities, is located on the river near the take out. There is no post trip bus ride necessary. Dam releases on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday, assure rafting from April to miid-October. Lodging is available in the area, including the adjacent Adirondack River Beds, which is owned and operated by one of our guides.
