Since 2006, Green River Adventureshas strived to provide an unforgettable outdoor experience with top-notch customer service as its core value. With roots based in kayak instruction, they have evolved into a full-adventure business providing everything from the “staple” Inflatable Kayak trips to the unique Bradley Falls Rappel. They have something for everyone!
Green River Adventures launched The Gorge, the steepest, fastest canopy tour in the country. The Gorge, which opened in June 2013, features 11 zip lines, a sky-bridge, and 3 rappels in tree-based platforms. Participants will experience a 3-hour tour immersed in nature beginning at the outpost and finishing an unprecedented 1,100 vertical feet at the base of the gorge. Most of the tree-based platforms will have stunning views of the gorge.
