Picture it now You're wading through an Adirondack river on a warm summer day. Feel the ever present flow of the river, the contrast of its coolness as you learn the textures of the riverbed. Fluffy clouds are moving across a bright blue sky, the light playing on the water. You're surrounded by lush greenery. The only sounds are the bubbling of the river and the birds calling out to each other.
Sensory Immersion Your guide 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 so you can experience nature in a new way. Slow down, unplug...the river will do the rest. Riverwalking is a unique experience. Make your family vacation or your romantic getaway more meaningful this summer.
"I've never been in the water and used it as a tool to slow down, to be within myself. I don't feel separate from nature. I feel a part of it." Andrea, NYC
"I feel so relaxed, the most relaxed I've felt in like five years." Jessie, Canton
