Flowing through the heart of southern West Virginia are two uniquely majestic rivers – the New River and the Gauley River – each offering fun, exciting and challenging rafting opportunities for all ages and abilities from May through October.  Discover for yourself why West Virginia is renowned as America’s Best Whitewater®.

Both the New River and the Gauley River are protected by the National Park Service so here only the seasons change and nothing else.  Stunning scenery and rich history are hallmarks of these two rivers which feature distinctly different trip options from float trips to world-class expeditions and everything in between.
