    What to Expect
    Whitewater rafting on the Lehigh River in the Poconos of northeastern Pennsylvania is rafting just the way you want it, with rapids ranging from easy to exhilarating. Our family adventure offer Class I & II rapids for a fun day outdoors.

    A visit here means real fun, real rapids, and real adventure! Come rafting for the whitewater or come for the scenery. Either way, the Lehigh River is the perfect whitewater adventure location. 

    Rafting adventures are fun for the whole family, but participants must be at least 5 years old. Rafts can accommodate groups of up to 6 people and will be accompanied by experienced guides (in kayaks) in class I-II white waters. Bringing a light lunch is recommended, as your adventure will span 5 to 6 hours. You'll spend approximately 2.5 to 3 hours on the water, taking in all the excitement and scenery of the Lehigh River! 

    All necessary equipment is provided to you, and wet suits are available to rent on colder days. On warmer days, a swimsuit or light clothing is recommended, as well as closed-toed shoes for protection.
