Our Roots Run In Deep Water

Whitewater rafting trips with ACE Adventure Resort provide year-round fun for every thrill level on two nearby rivers: the mild to wild, family-friendly New River or the more adventurous, wilder and wildest world-class whitewater on the Gauley River. Our most popular trip is rafting down the intermediate class three and four rapids on the Lower New River. Need more of a challenge? Brave some class five-plus waves on the Gauley River for more extreme thrills – many of us LIVE for the wildest white water weekends during Gauley season!
