What better way to introduce a friend to the thrill of the Gauley?
“Early fall is easily one of our favorite times to go rafting.” Explains River Expeditions owner, Rick Johnson. “Gauley Savings Galore is one of best ways to get on the water in a way that many travel around the world to experience, without breaking the budget!”
Both the Upper and the Lower Gauley are known to be some of the most exhilarating trips available around the world, with the Upper Gauley currently listed as the 7th best course in the world.

River Expeditions features a wide variety of the lodging options, with something to fit every taste and style. Whether you’re looking for your “home away from home” the opportunity to get back to nature, or something in the middle, River Expeditions has the ideal lodging available. Regardless of what option guests choose, they can assured that it will be a compliment to an exciting weekend on the water.
Whitewater rafting consists of traversing a stretch of water in an inflatable raft. Trips normally span for about 5-7 hours, including a break for a waterside lunch. Experience is not necessary on some of the milder trips, and guides will provide comprehensive training prior to beginning any trip; plus support during. The ability to swim is helpful, but not required, and many non-swimmers take to the water every year. All guests are provided with all necessary safety equipment: a Coast Guard Approved Type V Life Jacket, Paddle and Helmet.
The Gauley River is dam controlled, ensuring the optimum rafting flow in the fall. This is an incredible rafting experience that is best experienced over two days in order to fully enjoy all the adventures that the Gauley and River Expeditions have to offer.
