You probably won't find a better white water combination anywhere in the world! We've combined three great days of rafting to give you America's Best Whitewater. Raft the Lower New on Day 1, the Lower Gauley on Day 2 and the grand finale of the Upper Gauley on Day 3.

This daylong Lower New River raft trip is a classic adventure in the best-made rafts available - Avon by Zodiak of North America. The 14' Avon Adventurer self-bailing raft holds 7 paddlers for each guide and features spirit, agility and stability.

Lower New River is one of the oldest rivers in North America, the Lower New River flows through a rugged canyon up to 1300 feet in depth exposing rocks as old as 330 million years while passing through an area rich in coal mining history. Squeezing down between rugged mountains, the river alternates from Class III-V rapids to pools perfect for swimming. Upper and Lower Railroad, the Keeneys, Miller's Folly and Double Z are among the many rapids that lie in wait.

The Lower Gauley is characterized by roller coaster waves and also sports impressive scenery. Despite names of rapids like Mash, The Gates (of Heaven or Hell?), and Pure Screaming Hell, this section of the Gauley River ought not be missed. Most veteran guides consider this their favorite section. This Lower Gauley River raft trip is in the 14' Avon Adventure self-bailing raft that holds 7 paddlers for each guide.

Big drops (Class I to V+) complex rapids, and excellent scenery characterize the Upper Gauley. Some of the major rapids encountered include Insignificant, Pillow Rock, Iron Ring, Lost Paddle, and Devil's Backbone (also known as Sweet's Falls). This daylong Upper Gauley River raft trip is in our 14' Avon Adventure self-bailing raft that holds 7 paddlers for each guide. Because of the challenging nature of the Upper Gauley, we do not recommend this for folks who are intimidated by prior rafting trips or cannot swim

What to Expect:

- Each day arrive at Class VI to a complimentary reception of Starbuck's coffee and juice in Chetty's Pub. Chetty's also offers an assortment of a' la carte breakfast items.

- Check-in with your Trip Leader and fill out release forms (minors unattended by legal guardians must bring a signed Class VI release form day of trip).

- Change into your river wear, wetsuits and windbreakers are recommended, grab a life jacket and helmet, then load up and head for the river.

- Approximate 45 minute bus ride to put-in depending on water levels.

- On route or at put-in, your trip leader and guide deliver a safety talk covering the fundamentals of rafting and proper use of river equipment.

- Enjoy our deli lunch part way down the river on each day.

- At the take-out point, the gear is loaded onto our vehicles and we head back to Class VI while enjoying a complimentary beverage.

- Back at Class VI enjoy a hot shower (don't forget your towel), shop at our Canyon Rim Store, take a stroll to our scenic overlook and enjoy a buffet dinner at Smokey's On The Gorge - all located at Class VI's canyon rim facility.
