Our Rangers are trained to interpret the natural environment and offer a personal guided experience pointing out natural features along the way. Two new bridges and two new ziplines added in 2012 give spectacular views of the Smoky Mountains and Fontana Lake. Be aware, Zipline Adventure Parks are a totally different experience with very limited zipping and a 2-hour self-guided tour on a high ropes course. If it is a zipline/canopy tour that you looking for, Nantahala Gorge Canopy Tours is where you want to go. A soaring zip experience through the trees, NGCT is More than a zip line ride. « less

The first time experience for my partner and I participating in the zipline activity was incredible. The drive up from Miami, FL was worth the while. This activity has made our visit to Bryson city even more memorable. The staff is not only knowledgeable, but their humor was priceless. We also were accompanied by their dear pet Pancho, an adorable... More

My son (22) and his girlfriend and myself (55 female) decided to do something out of our comfort zone this summer. We couldn't have made a better choice. Just enough adrenalin rush to make it interesting. The guides were superb and made us feel very safe which enabled me to not worry about myself and my child and just enjoy... More

It was just my husband and I, and another couple. It was our first time zipping and we had so much fun. I think it was probably better cause it was just us 4 and two guides, Colby and Clay. The guides were the best and they told us some interesting little facts along the way. The views on the... More

Totally worth the price and the drive from our BandB in Asheville! My hubby surprised me with this activity on our anniversary get-away so we could enjoy the fall foliage and high speeds! Solid training before starting the course so you had nothing to worry about. We loved that you were in and among the forest the whole time and... More

We went to Nantahala Gorge Canopy Tours to celebrate a birthday! What an amazing adventure! The guides, Tracy and Miranda, were awesome! Loved the time we spent with them along with the other zippers that joined on our tour. The views were spectacular, the safety systems were superb, and the zips were a soaring good time! Highly recommend!

We had an incredible time. It was the first zip for us both. I'm afraid of heights but these folks keep you safe and entertained. We loved it!! Amazing. We did our research on zip lines before coming to NC. There were several close to where we were staying in Lake Lure but we decided to trek the extra hour... More

I cannot recommend this highly enough! It may seem a bit pricey but it is well worth it, especially if you bundle it with another attraction such as their whitewater rafting. Our tour guides were excellent and did a great job of explaining everything. My husband is afraid of heights, but he felt perfectly fine with all the safety equipment.... More

This was our 2nd trip to Nantahala Gorge Canopy Tours. They have added some more ziplines and we were ready for another great adventure. The guides are very professional, knowledgeable, and focused on the safest procedures in spite of a wise-guy like me. Kaytee and Colby were all business and made sure we followed their safety instructions. But during our... More
