About Adventures on the Gorge

America's premier adventure resort—Leading the world outdoors.

Adventures On the Gorge is the only adventure resort situated on the rim of West Virginia's incredible New River Gorge. Nobody else has a swimming pool and dining on the very edge of the NRG. Nobody else has only a 6-minute drive from the New River take-out back to the resort. Nobody else boasts the dramatic setting and stunning scenery that we do. AND we're only 5 minutes from the restaurants and shops of downtown Fayetteville. Find us on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Google+.

We are the merger of four of the best river outfitters in the world, stretching back to 1972. The total cumulative years providing world-class adventures is extraordinary among this hand-picked group of brands. We have added zip lines, additional adventure activities, lodging from under the stars to five stars and restaurants at our resort from dining table to dinner bell. We put it all together to make the best adventure resort possible in one of the world's most beautiful locations.
