Welcome to the world-famous Lehigh River Gorge in Pennsylvania's Pocono Mountains - home to one of the most popular whitewater rafting trips in the country! Here you'll discover a close-to-home adventure that feels a world away! Awesome wilderness scenery and exciting, fun-filled rapids combine for a picture-perfect outdoor day. You'll laugh. You'll scream. And you'll soak yourself silly! Absolutely no experience needed!

The deal we get is the most popular Dam Release Whitewater (Ages 9+). Check out the details in the link http://www.whitewaterchallengers.com/lehigh/lehigh-whitewater.asp

This is our most popular trip, and thanks to weekend dam releases, we'll be rafting through the fabulous Lehigh River Gorge all season long... Spring, Summer and Fall.
