Rafting Trips on the New and Gauley Rivers in West Virginia

West Virginia Adventures is a premiere white water rafting outfitter on the New River and Gauley River in West Virginia.

Why Choose West Virginia Adventures?

Of the professional river outfitters on the New and Gauley Rivers, West Virginia Adventures is one of the smallest companies. Owner Rob Dobson feels that this makes it possible to focus on the individual needs of his guests, and provides for a more intimate experience on and off of the river. "We appreciate all of our guests and want to make the best experience possible for them. Some outfitters put nearly a thousand people down the river each day, and it begins to feel more like a circus than a rafting trip. This is not the case on our rafting trips or at our base camp. Often, we have only one trip a day, and this allows us to set our own pace on and off of the river. I personally accompany nearly every West Virginia Adventures rafting trip, and with over 20 years of experience on the river, I believe that I can provide the best rafting experience possible for my guests."
