Welcome! Adventures on the Gorge is stoked to guide you on our beloved New River!

Joslyn & The Sweet Compression play 7:30pm at The Outpost on Saturday, April 20th, 2024 (Concert Info & Tickets Here). Earlier that day you can hop on a guided whitewater rafting trip with AOTG on the New River with other concert-goers!

The Lower New River, in the heart of the New River Gorge National Park, is a favorite for first-time rafters and whitewater enthusiasts alike. This class II-IV section of whitewater has large shelf drops and boulders, add in the big springtime water levels and you have a perfect combination of waves and hydraulics that make for world-class rafting.

The Lower New River Rapid Run trip kicks off about 1:00pm and should be back around 3:30pm (5:00pm would be the extreme latest). Lunch is not included. Rapid Runs are also available on Friday and Sunday at 1:00pm. (It is highly recommended to rent a wetsuit & splashjacket combo for $15.)
