River Expeditions Announces The 2015 Dates For “Spring Fling” Weekends!

River Expeditions is excited to continue their annual tradition of Spring Fling Weekends in the New River Gorge. This mini-package features whitewater rafting, great food, and fun throughout the weekend in West Virginia.

Join River Expeditions for their annual welcoming of the warmer weather and warmer waters through the “Spring Fling” Weekend specials. The dates for 2015 are the weekends of May 2nd, 9th, and 16th. This exciting weekend special includes rafting, BBQ cookouts after rafting, 2 nights of camping and a daily light breakfast – all paid for in one tidy package! The fun doesn’t stop when the sun goes down – head on over to the Red Dog River Saloon onsite at River Expeditions for live music, games, and complimentary beverages.

Spring is an amazing time to go whitewater rafting not only because of the thrill of the water, but also because the New River Gorge is beginning to come alive with the sights and sounds of warmer weather. This trip includes moderate to difficult rapids in areas where the gorge is narrow, all while being surrounded by the beauty of nature. In addition to a high-adrenaline trip, River Expeditions also outfits an adventure suitable for the new or nervous rafter. This trip features opportunities to paddle, take pictures, and experience the gorge at a more leisurely pace. This trip is a great way to push those last thoughts of winter away, with temperatures averaging 71 degrees in May.

River Expeditions outfits rafting trips down the New and Gauley Rivers from April to October. These trips consist of navigating a stretch of the rivers on an inflatable raft for about 5-7 hours, including a break for lunch. While no experience is necessary to raft on the milder sections of the river, there are several trip options for the veteran rafter and adrenaline junkie! The ability to swim is not required, but it is helpful. Additionally, rafters are equipped with all necessary safety equipment: a Coast Guard approved Type V Life Jacket, Paddle, and Helmet.

“Spring Fling Weekends are a fantastic way to invite in the warmer and sunnier weather in West Virginia.” Says River Expeditions owner, Rick Johnson. “We know guests will really enjoy the sights of the water and a great weekend with friends and family – and all for a great discounted price!”
