Plan for the perfect adventure
The Adirondacks are home to some exhilarating whitewater experiences. As with any Adirondack adventure, make sure you're prepared for the trip and hire a guide if you're new to the sport. Whitewater is not something you should tackle by yourself and the guidance of a professional will make your adventure the most fun, and safest, it can be.
You can find a variety of guide services in and around Lake Placid. They can point you in the right direction if you're looking for a whitewater adventure.
If you're looking for a rafting trip, try a trip through Ausable Chasm (about 30 minutes from Lake Placid) or head down to Indian Lake (about an hour from Lake Placid) to raft the Indian and Hudson rivers. These are unique experiences the that will help you craft the perfect day.
