Duckie Paddling and rafting trips on the Mild and Gentle Upper New River
New River Gorge National River

For those looking for a gentle introduction to the world of whitewater, a trip on the Upper New is perfect for all generations. Children and adults alike have a lot of fun navigating the river in a duckie (a cross between a canoe, a kayak and a raft) or enjoying the river from inside a small raft. Rapids are Class I - III (on a scale of I - VI) and suitable for beginners yet challenging. Very scenic with many opportunities for floating and swimming in the river.

It's big waves, challenging rapids, boulder fields and towering cliffs. The pool/drop nature of the New River also allows ample time for taking a dip on a hot summer day and watching the world float by as you drift down the river. Beware of the noise around the bend! Rapids are Class I - V. We have Great two-Day Overnight trips - double your Fun!

People flock from around the world to take advantage of the 22-day Fall Gauley Drawdown. The Upper Gauley is intense and challenging while the Lower Gauley reeks of big waves and lots of fun. Rapids are Class I - V+.
