Rapid Run 1 Day
New River Gorge, West Virginia Whitewater Rafting, Plus Lodging and Dining
Are you interested in whitewater rafting on the Lower New River, but don't want to spend all day out there? The New River Rapid Run getaway was designed for those who enjoy the intensity of rafting the Lower New River, but in a shorter 3-3.5 hour format. This gets you out there to enjoy the New River during off-peak times, plus gives you 2 nights lodging and an all-you-can-eat breakfast.
The Rapid Run itself is available in the morning or afternoon. No matter the season, it begins at Cunard, WV and runs 8 miles through 27 rapids up to class IV+. We know it's a quick hit you're after, but we still take out more than a mile downstream than everybody else, which adds two more major rapids to the mix. Heh, sorry about that!
Prices are per person and do not include tax and fees. Prices vary by day of the week and number in party.

What is a “Getaway?”

Tell me more about the lodging options!
Whatever you like! If you’d prefer to camp under the stars, we have that available in two campgrounds—one more suited to families and one with more liberal quiet hours. If you like the idea of camping, but you don’t have the equipment for it, we have everything from platform tents to primitive bunk houses with nothing more than walls, a roof and electricity. We’ve got Mountain Cabins, too, which are a step up. They have private bathrooms, heat, AC and efficiency kitchenettes. Outback cabins are a little more swanky and have more amenities, and Deluxe Cabins—with 2, 3 or 4 bedrooms are even better with amenities such as wi-fi and hot tubs. Still not sufficient? Check out any of our luxury vacation homes, such as Paddle House, which sleeps up to 12 in high style and sits literally on the rim of the New River Gorge.
