Lower New River Splash & Dash

New River Gorge, West Virginia Whitewater Rafting, Plus Zip Lining, and Dining

The Lower New River is the trip that built the West Virginia whitewater industry, especially in the warm southeastern summer months. It’s 27 rapids long—more if the water level is high for the season—packed into 8 miles of adventure. This getaway includes the classic run, 1 breakfasts and 1 lunches.

But that’s not all. The Splash & Dash getaway also puts you into the forest itself for the one of the best canopy tours on Earth, TreeTops. 10 zips, 5 skybridges and a rappel will either fill your jones for heights and speed... or cure you of any fear there of.

From the bottom of the New River Gorge to the tops of the trees... Are you ready?

Prices are per person and do not include tax and fees. Prices vary by day of the week and number in party.

What is a “Getaway?”
Adventures on the Gorge Getaways are easy-plan mini-vacation packages designed to get you doing the things you want to do at a discounted rate and with minimal fuss. We’ve pre-built these trips for you, so that all you have to do is pick your lodging and your meals.

Tell me more about the lodging options!
Whatever you like! If you’d prefer to camp under the stars, we have that available in two campgrounds—one more suited to families and one with more liberal quiet hours. If you like the idea of camping, but you don’t have the equipment for it, we have everything from platform tents to primitive bunk houses with nothing more than walls, a roof and electricity. We’ve got Mountain Cabins, too, which are a step up. They have private bathrooms, heat, AC and efficiency kitchenettes. Outback cabins are a little more swanky and have more amenities, and Deluxe Cabins—with 2, 3 or 4 bedrooms are even better with amenities such as wi-fi and hot tubs. Still not sufficient? Check out any of our luxury vacation homes, such as Paddle House, which sleeps up to 12 in high style and sits literally on the rim of the New River Gorge.
