Brace yourself for the East Coast’s most classic class-IV whitewater run and then strap in for the the wildest, fastest, longest zippiness in the region.
Day One: 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 swim, float and relax. The character of the Lower New changes dramatically with various water levels. At high water (typically spring through June) the waves are gigantic roller-coaster-y stacks of water. At lower levels, the waves get smaller, but steeper, and when it gets low enough, it’s time to go raft surfing, which is a little like riding an angry drunken hippo. We’ll eat a huge deli-style lunch riverside, too!
On morning two, buckle up and strap in for Gravity Ziplines, which will round out your stay here with all the blazing, blazing fast speed you can handle. Gravity Ziplines is all about thrills, so bring your chutzpah. Six zips ranging in length from 400’ to the 3100’ Adrena-Line, with heights up to 200’ off the ground and speeds that routinely reach well into the 60s (miles per hour) will keep your pulse pumping every time you time you think about weeks after your ride.
This package includes:
- Day 1: Lower New River Whitewater Rafting
- Morning 2: Gravity Ziplines
- Lunch on the rafting day
- (Optional) Buffet breakfast both days and prix fixe dinner on the rafting day
