Whitewater Challengers' certified guides lead paddlers of all experience levels across the skipping surf of the Poconos’ Lehigh River Gorge. Up to seven people per boat steer through challenging rapids, peruse pristine wilds, gaze at the scenic surroundings, and extend a diplomatic hand to passing trout. The on-river trips—which last up to four hours—equip amateur Lewises and Clarks with wetsuits and all the necessary rafting gear except for a suppressed need to paddle something. Rafters-to-be can check out Whitewater Challengers’ FAQ page to enhance the experience.
