Discover the joy of rafting along this mellow and scenic section of America’s newest National Park: New River Gorge National Park & Preserve. The Upper New River Canyon is a fun-filled adventure perfect for families with young children and teens. You’ll never forget their childhood so take them to a place they’ll never forget! Get the kids away from technology and into nature, reconnecting as a family. This soft, scenic introduction to rafting is also recommended for adults looking for a low impact adventure.
The trip is characterized by mild waves, playful pools with a few easy rapids and a glorious glimpse of nature at its best. Along the way there are plenty of opportunities to swim, play, paddle, spot wildlife, take photos and just relax. Choose to be in a guided raft or try paddling your own highly responsive, easy to paddle “ducky” (inflatable kayak which holds one or two people) for added challenges and fun. You can also opt to upgrade to an oar-assisted raft and let the guide do all the work.
River Expeditions guides are friendly, experienced, patient and engaging. They’re committed to showing your family a fantastic time on the river. Your guide will seamlessly blend talent with enthusiasm while sharing their love and knowledge of the river.
*Any Kids rafting free must be included in the reservation total at the time of booking to ensure correct trip logistics (staffing, transportation, meals) – thank you for your understanding and cooperation!
