Whitewater rafting in Almost Heaven isn’t only for adrenaline junkies. The Mountain State offers plenty of options if you’re looking for a milder experience. While the lower New River is known for its intensity, the upper New River is much more family-friendly. In fact, children as young as six years old can enjoy a day on the upper New River! Adventures on the Gorge, ACE Adventure Resort, River Expeditions and many more local outfitters offer packages on the upper New River at affordable prices the whole family will love. In Mountaineer Country, Tygart River Outfitters offers guests the chance to experience Class II and Class III whitewater on the Buckhannon, Tygart, and Middle Shenandoah rivers. River Riders in Harpers Ferry offers packages that include Class I-III rapids for the less experienced rafters, and whitewater tubing is even offered in the fall months thanks to lower water levels!
