Not sure what to give the person on your list who has everything? Why not give them the gift of a new experience! The New River Gorge is full of adventure, and we have the perfect present for every thrill seeker on your list.
Give someone the walk of a lifetime with Bridge Walk! These special tours take you under the New River Gorge bridge. Walk the entire length of the catwalk 850 feet above the New River. You’ll learn some neat history and see panoramic views of the New River Gorge.
Canopy Tours and Ziplines
Fly through the trees on a zipline! Outfitters like ACE Adventure Resort, Adventures on the Gorge and River Expeditions offer canopy tours and ziplines that will make you feel like Superman flying above the ground. The scenery can’t be beat, either.
There’s nothing more exciting than a heart-pounding whitewater rafting excursion. In fact, we think a trip on the New and Gauley rivers should be on everyone’s bucket list (we promise, we’re not biased). From the family-friendly Upper New to the raging Gauley, there’s a whitewater rafting trip that’s perfect for everyone.
Climbing may seem like an intimidating sport, but our local outfitters will show you the ropes! The New River Gorge is a great place to take a beginner’s trip, too. Sandstone cliffs provide the perfect surface to learn the ins and outs of this popular sport. By the end of the day, you’ll be climbing and rappelling like a pro!
Views from the Air
What’s more exciting than seeing the sights from the air? Give someone a plane ride they’ll remember forever. Wild Blue Adventure Company takes you on a trip around the New River Gorge in a fully restored World War II Stearman bi-plane.
