Splashy fun on the East’s most classic whitewater run, plus a truly wild motorized (or not) ride.
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!
What is a FatKat? It’s an e-bike, an electric assist ride that feels like half mountain bike and half motor bike. The harder you work, the harder the motor works, or, to heck with it, just punch the throttle and open ‘er up. Either way, hang on tight for the second morning of your adventure stay.
This package includes:
- Day 1: Lower New River Whitewater Rafting
- Morning 2: 1/2 Day Guided FatKat Tour
- Lunch on the rafting day
- (Optional) Buffet breakfast both days and prix fixe dinner on the rafting day
