New River White Water Rafting Trips
The New River, known to many as the Grand Canyon of the East, features the best white water rafting in America! The New River lies in a stunning and picturesque, West Virginia gorge, with the mountains of the Allegheny Plateau creating a dramatic skyline more than 700 feet above the river. Wildwater Expeditions offers Whitewater trips on two sections of the New River Gorge:
New River Rafting Overnight Trips
Combine the thrill of whitewater rafting with the relaxation of camping — and Wildwater makes it all hassle-free. A 2-day New River rafting trip is fun for families, and great for corporate retreats, youth groups, scouts and teambuilding groups.
Upper New River Rafting
Spend precious quality time together enjoying a cool swim in calm pools and experiencing fun on Class I-II rapids. You can choose to paddle in a raft or try your hand in a 1- or 2-person inflatable kayak (also called a ducky). Duckies are available at no additional charge. Either way you will enjoy the time you spend with friends and family!
Lower New River
Known as the "Grand Canyon of the East", a journey down the mighty New River is the best way to experience one of America's National Treasures. Whitewater rafting on the Lower New River is the most popular trip in West Virginia because the rapids appeal to a wide variety of rafters. Lots of exciting and fun whitewater will keep rafting veterans interested while they share their passion for fun with first-time rafters. For novices trying a New River vacation for the first time, the Lower New River is a great introduction to America’s best whitewater.
