There is no river trip like The Lower New River Gorge. This ancient river is a milestone for East Coast paddlers. Calm pools, perfect for swimming, form between rapids, house-sized boulders line the river and scenery abounds!
On this section, the New River begins to narrow and simultaneously drop in elevation, and big water rapids form. Local boaters call this river section, where the water charges through deep and spectacular bends beneath ancient sandstone cliffs, “The Gorge”.
Children as young as 10 can paddle the Lower New River in an oar rig equipped raft. Our Best Ride Guarantee means we’ll put you in the raft size best suited for the water levels… and the most fun!
PLEASE NOTE! Oar controlled rafts are required for participants ages 10-11yrs. Call 877.787.3982 to learn more.
