Picture it now: You're wading through an Adirondack river on a warm summer day. Fluffy clouds are moving across a bright blue sky. You're surrounded by lush greenery and the only sounds are the bubbling of the river and the birds calling out to each other. Your Adirondack Riverwalking guide is opening your eyes to seeing the world in a new light. Don a pair of waders and step into the Ausable River to take a unique journey. Riverwalking will allow you to discover the joy of being in moving water, feel the flowing current, and take in the sounds of the river and the beauty of the Sentinel Range of the Adirondack Mountains.
Our guides will be there every step of the way to assist in heightening your senses to all the sights, sounds, smells and textures of the river. Take the time to slow down, unplug, and disconnect. The river will do the rest...
