The perfect combination of sit-back-and-enjoy-the-ride and guess-what-you-ARE-the-ride thrills.
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, psyche yourself up for the challenge of TimberTrek Adventure Park. Garden and Gun Magazine once called TimberTrek part ropes course and part circus school, but there are a lot of ways to describe it. Orangutan habitat for people? Sure. Ninja Warrior course in the trees? That works, too, but harnesses and lanyards round out the safety gear, so you can be assured you won’t fall all the way off, even if you wanted to.
This package includes:
- Day 1: Lower New River Whitewater Rafting
- Morning 2: TimberTrek
- Lunch on the rafting day
- (Optional) Buffet breakfast both days and prix fixe dinner on the rafting day
