Oak Hill, WV, March 15, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- A white water rafting trip is a great way to get away from it all and enjoy a day of fun and excitement. Rafting enthusiasts, as well as people new to whitewater rafting, can experience the exhilaration of a day on the river with River Expeditions in the New River Gorge in West Virginia.
River Expeditions offers rafting trips on the New River daily from April through October. Every Tuesday throughout the entire 2012 season, Terrific Tuesdays gives rafters the opportunity to buy one New River single day whitewater rafting trip at regular price, and get a second trip at half price. This is the perfect way to try out the experience at a great price.
White water rafting involves navigating a stretch of river on an inflatable raft. Most trips last about 5-7 hours, including lunch. Almost anyone from 6 to 86 can find whitewater fun on the New River. No experience is necessary on the milder sections of the river although there are plenty of thrills for the "adrenaline junkies" in the wilder sections of the New River. Although being able to swim is helpful, many non-swimmers raft with River Expeditions each year since each guest is given all necessary safety equipment: a Coast Guard approved Type V Life Jacket, Paddle and Helmet.
“We’ll help guests decide which section of the New River is best suited for them and their group,” explained River Expeditions owner, Rick Johnson. “We think our 'Terrific Tuesdays' pricing is particularly attractive for groups. White water rafting is a great team building exercise for companies and a strong motivational tool for employees, especially if Tuesday is normally a regular work day for them. And while we can’t change the economy, we can do our part to offer quality trips at a tremendous value; all while delivering outstanding service to each of our guests every day.”
While Terrific Tuesdays provide a day-long rafting experience, River Expeditions recommends rafting both sections of the New River in two days and either camping riverside or at their basecamp. This is the best way to get familiar with the variety and excitement that the New River offers.
