Running the New and Gauley Rivers
Hico, West Virginia (WV)

For 29 years we've hosted incomparable tours of West Virginia's whitewater rivers, inspections of diverse wildlife, vegetation, and beautiful scenery -- the backdrop for a 100-percent natural experience. Since then, we've found that West Virginia can't be outdone when it comes to having fun and spending quality time with family and friends. Mountain River Tours guided rafting trips range from leisurely float tours in the upper New River Gorge to world-class whitewater on the Gauley River and lower New. We provide cabins and campsites near our base camp at the junction of U.S. 19 and the Midland Trail Scenic Highway (U.S. 60). We're only five-minutes north of historic Fayetteville and the New River Gorge Bridge, near plenty of great lodging, dining, shopping, and other outdoor attractions.
