Experience America's Best Whitewater ®

Is adrenaline your middle name, or are you looking for something more tame? With over 15 trips to choose from on two renowned rivers, we have a West Virginia whitewater rafting trip for you.

Our Whitewater Rafting Adventures

Adventures on the Gorge is your premier adventure resort and day trip destination, located right next to New River Gorge National Park in Lansing, WV and about a half an hour away from the Gauley River.

Adventures on the Gorge Rafting at a Glance

We provide whitewater rafting adventures to suit people from every age group, rafting experience level, and comfort level. But whitewater rafting trips aren’t the only kinds of adventures we provide.

It’s important to note that in the greater New River Gorge region (close to New River Gorge National Park), you have access to both the New River (AKA New River Gorge River) and the Gauley River. The two separate rivers are unique in their own right and offer different white water rafting experiences.

Book a ziplining, aerial obstacle course, or SUP trip to round out your New River Gorge and Gauley rafting adventure. We have delicious dining options to fuel the day and comfortable lodging onsite for the best night’s sleep you’ve ever had. 

About Our New River Gorge White Water Rafting Trips

Our various rafting trips take you through some of West Virginia’s most beautiful and fun rapids, with each adventure geared to a different audience.

We offer both New River white water rafting trips as well as Gauley River white water rafting, depending on the season, on both the upstream and downstream portions of each river.

Feel free to explore the experiences below to determine which is best for you or your family. Or, just reach out and we’ll be happy to talk you through your options.

About our Gauley River White Water Rafting Trips:

One of the most adventurous white water trips on the east coast, rafting on the Gauley River is a trip to remember. With several class V+ rapids to explore, the Gauley River offers plenty to love. Our team will guide you through a thrilling rafting trip through scenic West Virginia mountains on either the Upper or Lower Gauley River. Rafting the Gauley is a trip of a lifetime but for first-time rafters, we recommend the Lower Gauley adventure!

Not sure where to start? You can always let our guide choose the “Best Run of the Day” white water rafting trip for you. The selection is dependent on water level and the season which means your rafting trip will be a surprise on the day of your trip!

Our rafting adventures go with the season, so there’s always something new. We challenge you to start with the Upper New, progress to the Lower New, then in the fall experience the Lower Gauley and end with the Upper Gauley.
