Whitewater rafting combines tranquil views of breathtaking scenery punctuated by moments of sheer terror, similar to watching a nature show while being shot at by hunters. Surrender to adventure with today’s Groupon: for $99, you get a one-day, two-night rafting and camping excursion on the Lower New River, plus a souvenir photo CD, from River Expeditions (up to a $200 value) in Oak Hill, West Virginia (about a five-hour drive from Cleveland).

Do battle with the watery forces of Mother Nature in the Lower New River rafting trip, which explores a stretch of tumultuous, National Park Service–protected rapids. An expert river guide leads each group, using a seventh sense for the river's history to point out eye-pleasers such as naturally carved canyons and the highest vehicular bridge in America. The river ranges from class II to class V levels of difficulty, with patches of challenging rapids slowing into calm pools, during which paddlers can relax or write love letters for delivery by carrier pigeon. After a full day of paddling, lay under the starry night and woo companions with knowledge of river-rafting-themed constellations, such as Thor's Paddle and Could Be a Rock.

The trip leaves from River Expeditions’ headquarters, about 4 miles southwest of the famous New River Gorge Bridge. All meals and beverages are provided; guests can bring a tent, sleeping bag, and pillow, or rent them for an additional price for their stay at the base camp. After the trip, guests will receive a photo CD compiling notable moments from the trip, allowing endless revisiting of daredevil sea-monster captures.

  • Floating the New and Gauley rivers in central West Virginia is a bit like visiting God's own amusement park; you may never be completely satisfied with a man-made water ride again… – Steve Stephens, Columbus Dispatch
