What is Adventure Class?
Adventure Class Trips (min. age 12) are more challenging than Family Class Trips. These rafting in West Virginia trips are characterized by alternating pools and drops that create big, roller coaster-type waves and rapids. Adventure Class Trips are suitable for beginners and experienced rafters alike.
Small Raft Upgrades
River Expeditions offers raft upgrades for those that want a more riveting ride white water rafting the Gauley River WV. Smaller rafts provide higher performance and increased maneuverability. Experienced paddlers (that are also over the age of 18, in excellent health and calmly respond to adverse conditions) can choose smaller raft options — Wildside or Extreme Wildside— for a new perspective and extra adrenaline rush.
Sometimes, families or smaller groups like to choose a smaller raft in order to have a closer, more personal experience without the added thrill. When upgrading to a small raft, simply share your preference with us, and we’ll be happy to accommodate.
