We had a great time rafting down the Lehigh River with Jim Thorpe River Adventures. Knowledgable and friendly guides who travel alongside your raft on kayaks, happy to lend a hand and help out when you get stuck on a rock (which is highly likely). Arrive on time, but don't plan on hitting the river until two hours later--sign in,... More

On September 26, our fitness family had a awesome time with Tom & Jerry of Jim Thorpe River Adventures. Great customer service started on the phone with Cindy weeks in advance and ended with us being treated to hot dogs, granola bars and birchbeer. We would do this trip again. The rafting trip was so exciting and we had a... More

This operation certainly has all the bases covered. Even if you've never been in a raft in your life Jim Thorpe River Adventures will make sure you have a blast and will keep you safe while doing so. I recommend going for the 'white water' trip during a dam release.

When people are afraid of water and they don't know swimming then they have couple of options to nurture the beauty of landscapes carved out by the water. I was in poconos and thought of doing rafting with my friends. I don't know swimming so i was totally dependent on my friends or guide to save me in case something... More

This was my first time rafting. It was a release weekend, so there was plenty of water. The staff is awesome and the experience was very fun!

Although I was a bit nervous having a small child with us on the raft, the guides were extremely helpful and one got in the raft with us for most of the trip making me feel very much at ease. The rapids were so much fun and my kids had a great time. Our only regret is not bringing water... More

I was lucky enough to have received a whitewater river tour as a birthday gift this year. I was finally able to cash in on my gift this past Friday. I have to say that I am more that satisfied with my experience. The tour itself was fun,exciting and unforgetable. The age range of the rafters went from small children... More

I took my two sons on the family expedition. I thought it would be a good first trip for whitewater rafting. Unfortunately, there was little adventure and it was rather boring and long. However, the guides were great! This trip is better for families with very young kids. My kids were pre-teens.

My family and I went for a white water adventure to Jim Thorpe PA. It is about a two hour drive for us thru rural PA. The drive was really nice as we crossed pastures and farms on our way to Jim Thorpe. The company is organized as they are moving large groups of people of all ages and fitness... More

The people running this company are pleasant and it's a beautiful area to go rafting, but be aware, this is a long trip. We were told over the phone that this would be a 3 hour trek, but this was not the case. We were scheduled to arrive promptly at 10 AM but didn't get on the river until 11:20.... More
