The country’s premier adventure resort, Adventures on the Gorge (AOTG), has re-tooled its popular all-inclusive package, Explore the Gorge, so vacationers can choose just how active they’d like to be during their visit.


The package offers choices for travelers seeking dawn-to-dusk adventures as well as for visitors who prefer a more relaxed experience.

AOTG’s Explore the Gorge packages combine adventure activities like rafting, stand up paddleboarding, zip lining, aerial adventures, kayaking, rock climbing and paintball with lodging and meals. In addition to the adventures, Explore the Gorge packages include lodging and some or all meals, depending on the package chosen. Lodging choices include luxury homes, multi-bedroom deluxe cabins with private hot tubs and several other cabin options, hotel suites and campsites.

The two-, three- and four-night vacation packages come in two versions – “Action Packed” and “More Relaxed.”

“Our all-inclusive vacations offer the best value for travelers who want a broad range of experiences, and we know that some of our guests prefer to be always on the go with gusto and some prefer to combine exciting adventures with time to relax by the pool, read a book or just take a quiet hike,” said Brian Campbell, co-founder and chief marketing officer for Adventures on the Gorge. “With these new options, travel companions can choose their level of activity while at the same time enjoying the all-inclusive amenities and value.”

Campbell predicted the “More Relaxed” option will be especially appealing to families and small groups.

Located on the New River Gorge near Fayetteville, W. Va., the resort features rafting trips on two of the best whitewater rivers in the country – the New River and the Gauley River – some of the most distinctive zip lines and aerial adventures on the planet and an array of other land- and water-based adventures such as rock climbing, kayaking, fishing and stand up paddleboarding. Additionally, AOTG offers three full- and two limited-service restaurants, a pool and a fun, casual, relaxed atmosphere that is appealing to travelers of all ages.

All packages are priced per person and do not include taxes or gratuities. Alcohol is not included in the meals. All full-day adventures include lunch. An example of a full-day activity is a river rafting trip. Examples of half-day activities include Kids Camp or one of two zip lines. And sampler activities include guided hikes, the TimberTrek Aerial Adventure Park and rock climbing.
