White water rafting on the New River in West Virginia

North American River Runners (NARR) specializes in white water rafting on the New River in West Virginia. The Lower New River is a whitewater roller coaster ride of towering, crashing waves. With more than 25 Class II to Class IV+ rapids, including The Keeneys, Upper and Lower Railroad, Greyhound Bus-Stopper, and Double-Z, the Lower New offers enough thrills and adventure for any enthusiast. One of the oldest rivers in the world, the New cuts its bed from the rugged West Virginia hills, winding through the 1,000 foot gorge known far and wide as The Grand Canyon of the East. Historic mining ghost towns pepper the gorge's walls. Calm pools between rapids give you a chance to take a swim, and to enjoy the awesome scenery and the abundance of wildlife. Several trips options make this a great adventure for both the experienced and the beginner.

Gentle and playful, the Upper New River is a wonderfully diverse section of river that appeals to all ages. Kids, teens, college students, parents and grandparents. Watch your 10-year-old maneuver his own boat in one of the flat water sections. Meanwhile, chat carefree with your guide as she rows your oar-powered raft. Bask in the sun. Breathe deeply the fresh air of your breathtaking surroundings. Pull your boss back in his inflatable kayak after Rudy's Ripple. Take a short hike to a waterfall or jump off the New River's notorious Jump Rock. Relax on a leisurely two-day trip and camp right on the river.
