Great experience for family with two teens. Heather was a fantastic guide, always fun, calm, and informative. All of the interactions with the staff before/after the rafting was top rate.

This was a trip my fiancée and myself took as part of her birthday weekend in the Adirondacks. I must say this couldn't of been a more perfect "getaway weekend" activity to do! it was amazing! Mack, our guide was so professional and knowledgeable. Despite me probably weighing twice his size, not once did I feel worried or hesitate in... More

We had an amazing time this weekend rafting with ARO on the Hudson River! Weather was great, water was fast and our guide Dylan delivered a fantastic trip! We had some exciting white water and even got to surf a few times! Highly recommend this adventure!

ARO does a terrific job providing an organized, safe, and thrilling ride down the Hudson River. We went in early July and the water levels were great - class 3 and 4. Critter is the best guide ever! The snacks and BBQ after the trip were very good and hit the spot after paddling for several hours. It can be... More

The price is reasonable for the experience you get. We went on the Hudson River Gorge. The rapids were mid-class 3, some 4. The entire trip lasted 5.5 hours (we were ahead of schedule because the extra rain made the river a little faster than anticipated). You stop mid trip for snacks and lemonade. Then after the trip, they give... More

My husband and I went rafting with ARO for his birthday. We went the first weekend in June and the water levels were great. We had class II and III rapids, with one that was technically a class IV. It was our first time and Dylan, our guide, was great. The staff made it clear that they wanted us all... More

I had rafted down the Hudson River before, but not with ARO Rafting. I selected them based on their high ratings on TripAdvisor. I went with a group of four, me and three other friends. We rented a cabin in the area so that we could be at ARO bright and early Saturday morning. The day before arriving, ARO called... More

My husband and I wanted to go when the river was the wildest, which is why we chose to go in April. It's freezing, definitely follow all their suggestions for the rafting trip on their website. We followed them and were much warmer than the others who didn't follow their suggestions. Our river guide was great and we felt safe.... More
