White water rafting on the Nantahala River is something everyone should do at least once in a lifetime. They have trips of all different levels and lengths so everyone can enjoy. Scenery is just beautiful.

I did the class III rapids on the Chattooga, Where the movie Deliverance was filmed. Nice little sandwich lunch provided toward the end of the trip, riverside. This was the last trip of the season, and the water was cold,... More

We rode the GSMR down to the NOC for our first white water rafting adventure. Our guide Hunter was phenomenal! He was very personable, knowledgeable, and ensured we were comfortable with all aspects of our adventure. He had the perfect mix of humor, friendliness, and information. When we arrived, we ate lunch onsite as it was included in our package.... More

For the nature lover and adventure seeker this is the real deal. Our family goes back, camps nearby and returns year after year. This year the zip line was the big hit with my boys and husband. Adventure, beauty and a great restaurant too. Can't beat it. Amazing friendly staff as well.

Our guides were Taylor and Dan, and our driver's name was Alex. They were all extremely personable and showed great knowledge and experience. They were also willing to share some of their favorite hiking and camping destinations with us, within the local area. Had an awesome time!

We went on a rafting trip on the Nantahala River from the Noc River Campus which is located in Bryson City, NC. The people here are first class and will make your experience very enjoyable. If you are looking for a great time this is it.
