Lower New River & Rock Climbing/Rappelling Package

The New River Gorge is known for its world-class whitewater and rock climbing, and today you’re doing both.


The Lower New River Gorge whitewater rafting trip is the class-IV classic that virtually built the entire West Virginia rafting industry. This drop-pool river section has eight miles of big waves and steep ledges punctuated by placid pools in which to catch your breath. The half-day version of that is what we call the Rapid Run; think of it as an express version without lunch on the river (though this package does automatically include lunch back at the resort). Choose lunch at either Chetty’s Pub or Buffler’s Pizzeria.

The two best vantage points from which to view the 900’-deep New River Gorge are the river and rocks, and we’ve got you covered on both. Rock climbing is challenging and it engages all your senses. Rappelling is physically undemanding, but that first step is a doozy. Expect to be sore at the end of the second half of your day.

This package includes:
  • 1/2-Day Lower New River Rapid Run
  • 1/2-Day Climbing and Rappelling
  • Lunch
  • (Optional) Buffet breakfast and prix fixe dinner
