Big Day Out
Three awesome adventures in one big day!
If you’re seeking a BIG adventure – Rafting, Biking and Hiking – then our BIG DAY OUT is definitely for you. Begin your day with a hearty breakfast to charge you up at the Broken Paddle Bar & Grill. Following breakfast, you’ll hop on one of our Trek bikes and embark on a 23 mile bike ride between the 1000 foot walls of the Lehigh Gorge Rail Trail. At the famous Glen Onoko in Jim Thorpe you’ll not only relax by the Lehigh River, but also enjoy your tasty box lunch.
After lunch your BIG DAY OUT continues with a scenic hike to an abandoned railroad tunnel and 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, locks and dwellings. Our friendly, well-trained guides will accompany you every step of the way as you explore the Poconos.
Pocono Whitewater Awesome Adventures!
BUT WAIT – your BIG DAY OUT doesn’t end there…
A delicious dinner and roaring bonfire at our Pocono Whitewater Adventure Center await your return. Your first victory drink (beer or soda) will be on us! Finally, your day is complete and you can hang out around the bonfire and brag that you survived Pocono Whitewater’s BIG DAY OUT!
