Fall Upper Gauley River Rafting

This is it. Fall Upper Gauley River rafting in West Virginia is more than a rafting trip. More than a vacation. It’s a whitewater milestone of the most remote, challenging and technical whitewater rafting run commercially in United States. This is no lazy river tube ride. This is serious class V whitewater rafting. Previous experience is highly recommended… and the reward is huge.

Trips starting at: $119 per person.

Fall Lower Gauley River Rafting

A little tamer than the Upper but just as fun than the Lower Gauley River is perfect for you! Not everybody is looking for a white-knuckle whitewater experience. If you’d like to have a blast riding giant waves in the remote and scenic backcountry of West Virginia this trip is for you. It’s suitable for beginning rafters, and it only comes around 2 months out of the year!

Trips starting at: $109 per person.
