Summer Whitewater Rafting Trips

Summertime IS the time to grab your friends and family and head out for a whitewater rafting adventure in the New River Gorge region of West Virginia. The weather’s warm, the water’s cool and the river is full of fun and excitement. No matter the age of your group, your experience or comfort zone there’s a whitewater adventure that’s right for you.

Rafting Trips For Every Comfort Level

For children as young as 6 years old, or for the timid beginner, check out our Upper New River Gorge rafting trips for the perfect beginner-friendly balance of fun and thrills. You’ll run rapids up to class III, jump of jump rock, enjoy a riverside lunch and all the things that make a river trip so great.

If your group is more confident, or you’ve rafted before, we highly recommend the Lower New River Gorge rafting trips. It’s truly the best single day trip in the Eastern United States. With the perfect balance of rapids up to class IV, lunch along the way, a giant jump rock -plus- scenery at every bend.

No matter how you approach it, summertime and whitewater fun are just meant to be together. Still seeking something more challenging? No problem. Scroll down and learn about Team Extreme/.
