River Expeditions continues “Terrific Weekdays” into 2016

Whitewater rafting in the New River Gorge in West Virginia is known to be some the best in the world, with a trip to satisfy everyone from the first-time rafter, to the experienced veteran. This year, River Expeditions will be continuing its immensely popular “Terrific Weekday” specials, creating the perfect opportunity to get back on the water in 2016.

As springtime finally starts to kick in, and temperatures begin to rise, the lure of the whitewater becomes stronger. This year, River Expeditions will be continuing to support the choice to hit the water by offering trips down the New River with the 2nd pass for ½ off on any Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday of the rafting season! This special is a great way to get away midweek and conquer that whitewater itch, and a fantastic discount makes the day just a little bit sweeter.

One of the best things about this promotion is that it lasts throughout the rafting season, from April until October – so there are ample opportunities to hit the water in 2016. Have a friend that you think would enjoy rafting? Terrific Weekdays are a fantastic way to introduce them to the sport, while also keeping up your New Years Resolutions to spend more time outdoors and exercising.

“If you’ve got a few extra vacation days this year, and want to spend a great day outdoors, and on the water, then this is the special for you!” expresses River Expeditions owner, Rick Johnson “It can be hard to get away and ‘switch off’ from it all, but something about whitewater tends to make all of that go away pretty quickly!”

A trip down the New River can be a great way to get to know whitewater rafting because many routes are suitable for the new rafter. A day on the water generally lasts about 5-7 hours, including a waterside BBQ lunch with all your outdoor favorites. Being able to swim is help, but not required, and River Expeditions supplies all necessary safety equipment, including a Coast Guard Approved Type V Life Jacket, a paddle and helmet.

For those who are looking for a more varied experience, weekend trips are available and provide for an absolutely unforgettable escape.
