Join us on the river for your next team-building day…

For your next company outing or staff retreat, let us provide a great experience for your team. Getting out on the water as a group inspires a special kind of camaraderie while relaxing the mind and engaging the body. River trips provide the perfect mix of fun, challenge, and reflection that seems to bring teams closer together while creating shared memories and laughs along the way. 

Our trips range from short outings suitable for total beginners to longer, more challenging trips that suit a adventurous and athletic group.  Our equipment is beginner-friendly and our guides have many years of experience introducing paddling to people from all walks of life.

Leading up to the program, we keep things simple for you; we listen to your needs, communicate promptly, plan all the logistics around your schedule, source the food and drinks for lunch and snacks, and provide all necessary equipment.  Your point of contact will be one one the company’s owners. We will walk you through it, even if this type of trip may be a step outside your team’s comfort zone.

“This was a wonderful experience for my team to detach from their cell phones and computers.  It was great for both the experienced paddlers as well as the first-timers.  Our international Team Members were able to enjoy all the natural beauty and splendor that Charlottesville has to offer.  The professionalism of our guides provided everyone with a sense of confidence and security allowing us to have  great time.”

“For the past two years, floating with Rivanna River Company has been a highly-anticipated part of Team Madison House’s annual retreat. It’s been appropriately challenging for some, wonderfully relaxing for most, and enjoyable for everyone. The RRC crew make it easy to slip some scenic outdoor adventure into our team-building mix–all without having to leave town. See you on the river!”
