The two best views in the New River Gorge are from the river and from the rim. And in this package, we’ve got both covered.
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!
The only thing we love as much as adventures in the New River Gorge are stunning views, and sometimes it seems like every other trail leads to one. Let us lead the way on the second morning of your package—we know where all the best panoramas are hidden.
This package includes:
- Day 1: Lower New River Whitewater Rafting
- Morning 2: 1/2-Day Guided Hiking Tour
- Lunch on the rafting day
- (Optional) Buffet breakfast both days and prix fixe dinner on the rafting day
