After lunch your BIG DAY OUT continues with a scenic hike to an abandoned railroad tunnel. a beautiful overlook of the Lehigh River in the Pocono Mountains of Jim Thorpe. You will descend back to the Lehigh River where whitewater rafts and equipment will be ready for your arrival.
You will raft the final leg of your adventure! The Lehigh rolls and bends as you go whitewater rafting and navigate rapids past the ruins of 18th century dams, as well as locks and dwellings. Our friendly, well-trained guides will accompany you every step of the way as you explore the Poconos.
BUT WAIT – your adventure doesn’t end there…
A delicious dinner and roaring bonfire at our Pocono Whitewater Adventure Center await your return. In addition, your first victory drink (beer or soda) will be on us!
