There’s always been a magic about a river trip – and you can getaway to the magic of whitewater rafting on the Lehigh River. Jim Thorpe River Adventures is close to home, likely only one tank of gas away – and probably a DayTrip from where you live.

Rafting the Lehigh River was, for many of us, our first rafting experience of our lives.  We couldn’t believe the breathtaking beauty of the Lehigh Gorge State Park.  Each one of us were drawn back, year after year, to a Lehigh River raft trip. Rafting is so much fun that it is immediately restorative. You’ll come home maybe a little tired from all the physical activity, but refreshed and fired up in a way that will surprise you. A Lehigh River raft trip certainly changed our lives for the better – we know it will do the same for you.

It is a privilege to put together a company of people, rafts, paddles, trucks, buses, and gear to be able to provide that professional river rafting experience to our guests.  We do our best to make this natural, outdoor adventure sport as safe as possible with the highest quality people. The Lehigh River is definitely not an amusement park – it is a natural and wild environment. We work hard at our job so you go home with wonderful memories for a lifetime. The owners are very experienced and well-prepared. Our river guides spend a lot of time training on the river…they also have magnetic, fun personalities. They are truly professionals. Our office manager and staff are wonderful people, always pleasant and ready when you are to help you choose a river rafting experience that is best for you. Our truck crew members –  hard-working’ guys that inflate and deflate your raft, will have your raft waiting for you with a smile. So much goes into having a smooth-running operation that provides you with an exceptionally great experience in a raft.

We take very seriously the trust our guests have in us as a professional outfitter. We love having fun at what we do! And… we love being able to provide a unique and totally cool way for people to get outside in breathtaking river scenery. It’s all fun, but preparation is paramount here, in every department. You’ll meet River Guides, Truck Crew Members, Bus Drivers, and Adventure Administration staff all along the way. Each of them has prepared in their own way to provide our guests with a superior outdoor memory that lasts a lifetime.

We consider it an honor that you’re thinking of becoming our guest. You can be confident we’re working hard for YOU!
