If there’s one thing we know at River Expeditions, it’s rafting – the New River Gorge National Park and the Gauley River National Recreation Area. These two unique rivers bring their own nuances offering adventures for beginners, intermediate/experienced and advanced paddlers. See for yourself why West Virginia is called “almost heaven” as you discover rugged natural beauty, rich history, dynamic culture and endless adventures.
