We’d also like to congratulate Andrew Yianne for being part of our 150th celebration issue, our youngest contributing photographer at fifteen years old. Andrew was our featured photographer and his photo of the National Gorge Bridge  (view from Long Point) made the cover, thanks Andrew.

Spotlight WV Adventures on the Gorge Winner



Here’s a video we recently edited for Spotlight West Virginia including footage shot by Adventures On The Gorge. Check it out, more videos to come.

Located at the rim of the New River Gorge in southwestern West Virginia, Adventures on the Gorge is the home of the New River Gorge Adventure Resort including Class VI-Mountain River, The Rivermen, and TreeTops Canopy Tours.

A whitewater rafting trip on the New River or the Gauley River in West Virginia offers all rafting enthusiasts – from novices to experts – some of the best white water rafting in the world. Class VI-Mountain River is proud to have taken thousands of rafters on river rafting trips down the New River and Gauley since 1978.

With TreeTops Canopy Tour, Gravity New River Gorge Zip Lines AND now TimberTrek Aerial Park, we have the largest selection of aerial adventure in the world! And it’s right here in West Virginia!

DCIM100GOPROIf you’ve tried TreeTops and loved it, but want more zipping, more exposure, more height and more speed, well adrenalin people, have we got the zip lines for you — Gravity Zip Lines! Whereas TreeTops is pure canopy tour, with 10 zips in the trees up to 730 feet long, Gravity is above the trees. On Gravity, you’re zipping from mountain ridge to mountain ridge. The views are stunning and so is the height and speed. Gravity climaxes with the 3100-foot long Adrena-Line, the longest and fasts single zip line in the eastern U.S. Adrena-Line zippers routinely hit speeds of over 55 mph! And the best part? There are two of them side by side, so you can race your friends!

Many of these long, fast zips in the world require you to spread out to maximize wind resistance and slow you down for the break at the bottom. Not us. Ball up, scrunch it in, get aerodynamic. On Adrena-Line, the faster the better!

Songer Whitewater – White Water Rafting in West Virginia
Enjoy the best in outdoor adventure vacations, dining, entertainment, and lodging. As part of Adventures On The Gorge, West Virginia’s leading adventure resort perched on the rim of the New River Gorge, Songer Whitewater can provide you the whitewater rafting, rock climbing, zip-lining trip of a lifetime.
