River Expeditions outfits white water rafting trips down the New River Gorge from April until October. Whitewater rafting is a great way to get outside as the sun starts to shine, without getting on a plane or spending days in the car. River Expeditions offers a variety of different activities aside from rafting, including ziplines, paintball, ATV rides, and hiking. The experienced River Expeditions staff also works hard to ensure that rafters of all skill levels have an enjoyable and memorable experience by offering a variety of rafting trips of varying difficulties. Outings usually run for about 5-7 hours, including a break for lunch. Being able to swim on these trips is useful, but not required; as each rafter is equipped with all necessary safety equipment: a Coast Guard approved Type V Life Jacket, Paddle, and Helmet.
“Our annual Icebreaker Weekend is one of our favorite events!” said River Expeditions owner, Rick Johnson. “It is a great way to welcome in the warm spring weather – from the excitement of a raft. We look forward to welcoming new and veteran rafters alike!
