Active Adventure

River & Trail Outfitters has been running rafting trips at Harpers Ferry, WV for 37 years, longer than any other company. Join us on the final stretches of the Shenandoah River as it tumbles into the Potomac, carving a spectacular 6.5-mile watercourse through the Blue Ridge Mountains. Travel on these two rivers through three states (Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia) on this unforgettable 2 to 4.5 hour guided whitewater rafting trip.

During periods of low water the trip is exclusively on the Potomac river, coursing through a majestic water gap, with a view Thomas Jefferson wrote was worth a voyage across the Atlantic. Both trips offer Class I-III whitewater, made up of some mellow water, permitting splashing and floating, multiple riffles and ledges, and challenging rapids such as "Bull Falls" and "White Horse."

Experienced guides lead your trip, showing you the best route through the rapids while entertaining you with tales from the river. As you float by Harpers Ferry National Historical Park, we'll educate you on events that lead up to the Civil War.
Weather permitting, on most trips, River & Trail offers the exclusive opportunity to maximize your experience on the river... we pack up our picnic lunch or dinner, and allow you to soak up some sun, while enjoying your picnic right on the river!"

From kids to active seniors, get ready to have some fun on this Harpers Ferry whitewater rafting adventure!

NOTE: This trip is generally a beginner level whitewater rafting trip, however, trip length and difficulty vary according to water levels.

Looking for more excitement? Especially during summer water levels, we reccomend trying the Shenandoah and Potomac Rivers on an inflatable or sit-on-top kayak!
