This is definitely a trip i will never forget. While we camped for the week on Virginia's west side mountain range we traveled south to the town of Buchanan some two hours from Luray. This trip to the James River was my wife's idea. We book the longest and earliest trip launch 7:30am, burrrrr. The fog was still hanging around... More

The overall experience was interesting and pretty fun. The one thing I wish they would have done is give some lazy river type rapids before directly shooting the customers into a level 1 rapid zone right off the bat. Pay attention to the safety brief, you will need to use that information later on.

If you are looking for a relatively safe and fun way to spend a day try tubing with Twin Outfitters. Anyone 6 and over can go as long as you can swim. (Life jackets are provided) If you are looking for hair raising rapids this is not the place for you. We opted for the tube all day option. Each... More

This is an easy kayaking trip with Class I rapids which we really enjoyed. We stopped off once but mainly just kept paddling and enjoying the sunshine... More

We went tubing on the James River with Twin River Outfitters yesterday. I enjoyed being able to reserve our spots online so that we knew they would have room for us on the day we chose, and I was shocked that they didn't require payment up front. We arrived and even though we were early they went ahead and took... More

TRO's shop in Buchanan provides all of the supplies necessary to paddle the river; guided trips or kayaks to rent to paddle on your own. They also have... More
