A Day of Fun... A Lifetime of Memories


Moose River

Hard-Core Whitewater In April

The Moose River: Simply put, the Moose River is the wildest rafting trip in the Northeast. This is where ARO got their start in 1980, and we are the only company that runs trips here on a regular basis. 

Our high adventure rafting season is in April when the river awakens after a long winters nap and becomes the ultimate whitewater challenge for Springtime rafting. The Moose is not for everyone and even the hardiest whitewater veteran is quickly and rudely awakened to the reality of the Moose.

The Moose is unpredictable and our season is short. You only have to do the river once to find out why the Moose is referred to as "Slam-dancing with Mother Nature".
