Make Memories: White Water Rafting & Tubing!

By DullesMoms, July 2022

River Riders is ready to guide your family’s next outdoor adventure! Located along the Shenandoah and Potomac Rivers, River Riders has been a Licensed Professional White Water Guide Service since the 70s. If you can imagine it, and it includes water, mountains, or forest adventures, River Riders can arrange it!

Some of the popular opportunities they offer families include:

White Water Rafting
This heart-pounding experience is perfect for both novice and intermediate paddlers. Guests are guided through a 5- to 7-mile excursion among the beautiful scenery in Harpers Ferry. An ideal family-friendly experience, paddlers will enjoy class I-III rapids.

Relax as you leisurely float down the Shenandoah or Potomac River this summer, or enjoy a more exhilarating adventure on the white water rapids of Harpers Ferry! River Riders has it all, with the experience, comfort, and value families know and trust.

Flat Water Tubing
The most relaxing float experience is flat water tubing, which is ideal for families and children (30+ pounds) on a hot summer day. Enjoy a full day of tubing as River Riders offers the longest flat water tubing trip in the area! Never has being lazy been so much fun!

White Water Tubing
Put a little pep in your step (or tube, rather) with white water tubing! As River Riders’ most adventurous activity, this experience is perfect for thrill seekers who are ready to take on the rapids of the river.

Fish Out of Water
If you’re looking for more excitement out of the water, be sure to take advantage of a River Riders zip-lining canopy tour or aerial adventure park. Cast a line for a great fishing experience on the Shenandoah or Potomac Rivers, or hop on a mountain bike for a scenic self-guided excursion!

River Riders recommends arriving an hour early for your departure. This gives you ample time to park (VIP parking is an additional fee), sign your waivers, and check-in.

Forget something? The on-site store has snacks, water shoes, waterproof phone cases, and memorabilia to ensure a smooth adventure.
