PLEASE FORWARD THIS RAFTING INFO TO EVERYONE IN YOUR GROUP!
MORE TRIP DETAILS: Please visit www.whitewaterchallengers.com, click on "Lehigh River" and then click on the Activity you've reserved: either Rafting, Biking, ZipLining, Paintball, etc. If you're rafting, also click on the "FAQ's" link -- Frequently Asked Questions.
HOW LONG IS YOUR RAFTING TRIP?: It's hard to be precise, because trip lengths vary from day to day, based on temperatures, wind speed, weather conditions, river flow, and the group itself. We ususally say 3-4 hours on the river, and 5-6 hours overall, but please let everyone know that any trip can last longer or shorter than the stated range of "normal" times.
HOW ROUGH IS THE WATER?: This also varies from day to day, depending on recent rainfall, discharges from the dam, the effect of downstream tributaries, and so on. On any given day, the largest rapids might be Class II, Class III, or in rare instances, Class IV.
SAFETY: Nothing is more important to us than your safety. We urge you to watch the Whitewater Rafting Safety Video on our web site, expecially if there are any youngsters in your party. Encourage THEM to watch, and to take our online Whitewater Safety Quiz, too.
TIMELY ARRIVAL: Our trip times are strictly regulated by the state, so we usually can't wait for late arrivals. Be sure everyone arrives no later than your stated "Arrival Time."
DRIVING DIRECTIONS: We caution against relying on GPS or Internet mapping services because they sometimes provide faulty information. Precise and accurate driving directions are available on our web site. Go to www.whitewaterchallengers.com, click on "Lehigh River," then click on "Driving Directions." From Interstate 80, Exit 273, you'll want to go west on Rt 940 for 1/2 mile; then turn left onto Lehigh Gorge Drive; go 4.8 miles; then turn right onto Buck Mountain Road; go 1 mile; then turn right onto North StageCoach Road; go 300 yards to our entrance on the right.
PROPER FOOTWEAR: Flip-flops, loose-fitting sandals, "crocs" and bare feet are not permitted on the river. Old sneakers are the best. Sturdy sandals (like TEVA's) are acceptable. Appropriate footwear can be purchased or rented at our Rafting Center.
WHAT NOT TO TAKE IN YOUR RAFT: Leave dry clothes and towels in your car for after the trip. Don't take in your raft any valuables, keys, coolers, alcohol, glass containers, pets, or cameras that aren't waterproof. Car keys may be left at the Rafting Center.
WHAT TO WEAR & BRING: You WILL get wet. On warmer days, a swim suit or T-shirt and shorts are fine. Sunscreen and a visor or brimmed hat are always a good idea. In cooler weather a windbreaker is useful. Avoid cotton, especially sweat shirts and sweat pants, which will actually make you colder. Paddling jackets and wet suits can be rented at the Rafting Center. One driver's license is required for up to six rentals. If wearing glasses, be sure to secure them with reliable glass-straps.
RAFT GROUPINGS: Organize your group into rafting teams (usually 6 or 7 per raft) before you get to the river. Make sure there's at least one adult in each raft.
RIVER LUNCHES: At the Lehigh, you're welcome to bring a light lunch (no alcohol, glass bottles or coolers) or you can order box lunches in advance, at a discount, from us. Advance lunch orders must be placed, as a group, at least 2 days before your trip. (Be sure to pick up your reserved lunches at the Rafting Center BEFORE you board the shuttle bus to the river.) Each raft includes a 5-gallon water-tight container for your food. Sometimes we can accommodate last minute orders at the snack bar.
BREAKFAST & DINNER: Meals are served most days, but advance reservations are recommended. If you're having breakfast with us, come earlier than your Activity "Arrival Time" listed above. Dinner hour lasts until about 1/2 hour after the last group returns to the Rafting Center.
SOUVENIR PHOTOS: We try to capture a photo of each raft in the rapids. You can purchase these at our Rafting Center after the trip. Or order them online after you get home.
WATERPROOF HI-DEF VIDEO CAMERAS: What a great way to document your adventure! Be sure to post your video on YouTube, or FaceBook, or just send it to your friends.
OUTFITTER SHOP: Our outfitter shop carries souvenir shirts and caps, and an assortment of items you might want or need for your trip. Take a moment to browse, before and after your tour.
ZIPLINE ADVENTURE: We invite you to enjoy our exciting tree-top ZipLine ride here at the Rafting Center after your trip. Tickets can be purchased in the Outfitter Shop.
PAINTBALL TARGET RANGE: Check out our Paintball Target Range, right here at the Rafting Center. Goggles and Gun Rental ($20 value) are FREE to our rafting and biking guests!
STAY AN EXTRA DAY: While you're here, we hope you'll take advantage of other programs, like mountain biking, rafting, zipLining, paintball, camping, tent and bunkhouse rentals, meals and more!
WAIVER FORMS: Waiver forms must be completed by each individual, for the adventure activities we offer. These forms can be found on our web site (whitewaterchallengers.com) and completed in advance, if you wish. Blank forms are also available at the Rafting Center.
TIPPING: We are often asked about tipping. While tipping is not an expected add-on to a below normal wage, it is certainly appreciated, and many of our guests do take the opportunity to acknowledge a job well done. Guide tips are usually in the range of 10% to 20% of trip fee, although tips outside this range are also not uncommon.
goECOgreen: Please join us in making this your most eco-friendly vacation getaway ever! Learn more at www.whitewaterchallengers.com/goECOgreen.asp about our recycling efforts, our reforestation and Pledge to Plant programs, and our carbon-neutrality campaign ... and all the other programs and practices we support in our relentless effort to protect and preserve the pristine places where we live, work and play.

A full refund of your payment is available if cancellation is made at least 15 days before your trip; a 50% refund for cancellations made 7 to 14 days in advance; no refund for cancellations made less than 7 days in advance. No exceptions. Trips are governed by strict launch schedules and there can be no refund for late arrivals or no-shows.
