About Us

Our family owned company believes in a mission, not a mission statement. Quite simply, we love sharing our passion for adventure; our guests come first, period. We pledge gracious hospitality, uncompromising service and unequaled value.

The River Expeditions Team is led by locals who live and breathe whitewater. As the only second-generation family owned and operated adventure outfitter in the area, our love of the New River Gorge National Park & Preserve and Gauley River National Recreation Area drives our desire to share this beautiful area with our guests.

Experience history, nature, culture and endless adventures – our lifeblood in the New River Gorge. We warmly invite you to discover authentic experiences, incredible values, fantastic amenities (we never charge an additional “resort fee” for the use of our pool and hot tub)  and exceptional hosts.

Not all outfitters are created equal. Discover the difference a family owned outfitter makes!
