New & Gauley River Adventures is a West Virginia four-season
outdoor adventure center. Year-round, we can design a trip to take you
to the most special, seldom-visited or simply spectacular spots in our
Picture yourself rocketing through narrow chutes, plunging into massive
holes and catching air at the edge of unexpected waterfalls. We'll take
you off the beaten path to streams rafted by no one else.
In the late winter and early spring, we run many rivers that are
available only in those months. The Cranberry River, Cherry River,
Upper Meadow River, and Middle Meadow River are just a few of these
"limited-time-only" adventures in West Virginia. Many smaller streams
also feature spectacular water - if you know when to be there. And
that's where our unmatched knowledge of the area comes in: If there's
wild water out there, we know where it is!
Adventures in West Virginia
The gentle crunch of freshly fallen snow under your snowshoes, a full
moon and a fifty-mile view from a 4,000-foot peak - that's the setting
for just one of the many special winter trips New & Gauley
Rivers can design for you. If cross-country is your game, strap on your
skis and head down Cold Knob - one of West Virginia's 10 highest peaks
-- for seven miles of uninterrupted, free-form freedom. Or just pull
the family or friends together for a moonlit evening of sledding and/or
snowshoeing combined with a winter campfire, a steaming hot chocolate,
and a relaxing hot tub.
Our experienced winter guides can take you
to the best spots for outdoor adventure anywhere in the Appalachians.
We'll design the adventure that's right for you, from extreme to
extremely relaxing. We take care of all the details, so you can
concentrate on the fun!
Photo and Hiking
Any time of the year, New & Gauley River Adventures can put you
in position for that "shot of a lifetime." Whether your interest is
scenery, wildlife or just simply folks having fun, we know when and
where to be there. A single day's trip can take you through three or
more dramatically different climate zones, each with its own
distinctive flora and fauna. West Virginia's high peaks are an
ecological "island" unto themselves, with plants, trees, wildlife and
scenery found nowhere else in the continental United States - more
characteristic of the Canadian North Woods than the southern mountains.
This is the land of the snowshoe hare and the black bear, roaming free
in vast stretches of high wilderness country. The nearby Cranberry
Glades National Recreation Area offers backcountry hiking through a
unique ecosystem mirroring the primeval forests that once covered the
entire continent. Experience it all, up close and personal, on a photo
or hiking safari with New & Gauley River Adventures!
As with all service industries, gratuities are not required, but are
certainly appreciated by our guides as well as our catering staff.
