“This is a great way for family and friends to get away for the Labor Day Weekend!” says Rick Johnson, owner of River Expeditions. “Whitewater rafting, BBQ, camping, live music, hiking, swimming, fishing – there’s something for everyone; and more. The New River area is beautiful this time of year, so we especially love seeing faces unfamiliar to late fall in the Gorge.”
The New River Gorge region is full of fun things to do – both on and off the water. Local towns add color and character with a variety of different foods and crafts for sale. The New River splits into two distinct sections – allowing for two separate paths of differing difficulties. The Upper New River is ideal for first time rafters and families with children. This is a fantastic trip full of opportunities to take pictures, swim and otherwise enjoy the beauty of the region. The Lower New River, otherwise known as “The Grand Canyon of the East”, features waves and water perfect for the seasoned, veteran rafter. Regardless of the trip chosen, rafters can be sure that their trip will show them West Virginia from entirely different perspective; the water.
White water rafting consists of navigating a stretch of river on an inflatable raft. Trips are generally about 5-7 hours, including a break for BBQ lunch. No experience is required on the milder sections of the river. The ability to swim is not required, but it is helpful. All guests are equipped with safety equipment: a Coast Guard approved Type V Life Jacket, Paddle, and Helmet.
