Looking for a great way to leave your hectic life behind for a weekend? A white water rafting trip with River Expeditions on the New River in West Virginia is just what you need. Get outdoors and outside your comfort zone to completely forget the reality of a busy life.
A River Expedition motto, “Go big or go home,” is fitting for a company offering big fun on the New River and excellent accommodations back at camp. There is a package for a variety of budgets, with several great summer and fall specials. Campers can choose between tent sites, tents on platforms, a rustic cabin or a deluxe cabin. While the camping options are ideal, River Expeditions also offers luxury cabins with five bedrooms, two baths, full kitchen, front porch, back deck with hot tub and a flat screen tv. Additionally, there are RV sites for those who bring home along with them.
River Expeditions offers big fun on the river and at camp. Not only can you white water raft, but can climb, ATV, bike, zip, ride horses and have a paint ball war. After you are completely exhausted from your big fun, there is a massage therapist on staff to help you relax, along with a pool and hot tub to hang out at. If you want more fun, head over to the Red Dog River Saloon for music, play a game of pool and have an adult beverage.
You may never need to leave camp, but if you feel the need to check out the local cuisine and do some sightseeing, River Expeditions is just outside Fayetteville, WV. Fayetteville is a beautiful historic town with a hippy vibe and offers several dining options. The New River Gorge Bridge is not far either. It is thrilling to see the third largest arch bridge in the world from the lookout deck at the National Parks Service visitor’s center.
Rest assured, your adventure is in good hands with the River Expeditions trip leaders and guides. These guys and gals are a perfect mix between craziness and professionalism. They are serious when they need to be, but get the party started from the get go. Your focus for the day is on big fun, adrenaline rush from the rapids and continual laughter.
Gather your friends, they need a break from the real world too! River Expeditions loves groups and is only a short three hour drive from Columbus! From your scout and youth groups to company picnics and family reunions and everything in between, they’ll make your group outing fun and memorable. River Expeditions also offers a scout merit badge program. Lead a group of 15 or more and your trip is free!
