The Abra River is a Philippine river found in the province of Abra in the Cordillera Autonomous Region (CAR). It passes through the Mountain Province and Ilocos Sur as well as its namesake province, Abra. One of the 5 largest rivers in the Philippines, the Abra River has a vast river basin which is known to be the 6th largest in the Philippines.

It is known for being the habitat of a unique species, the Abra River eel. The river flows strongly during the rainy season, feeding a number of tributaries in the plains and valleys of Abra. However, during the summer, the riverbed dries up, exposing its extremely rugged and rocky gravel bottom.

The widest river in the country originating from the Cordillera Mountains and flowing down to Ilocos Sur is an ideal place for swimming and fishing. The river serves as the converging point of all the rivers and streams in the nearby province and is one of the largest in the area.
