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

We have been zipping many times and this was the most tame we have done. The zips are short and low to the ground. I hate not to give a glowing review as the guides were super. This would be a good tour for younger kids or those afraid of heights.

When I found out we would be going on the zip lining tour I wasnt sure what to expect. It was a wonderful surprise to have wonderful views mixed with an exciting element of fun. Our tour guides were funny and made the experience quite enjoyable.

We did the zipline/rafting combo this past week and had a blast! Dana and Elroy were our zipline guides and they were great--very friendly, funny, safety-focused at all times, and helpful. The equipment was well taken care of and we were given practice runs before we started the adventure. My family and I loved the experience and will definitely return... More

In the area there are many options and we are so happy that we chose this company! It has 13 zip lines so it's a nice long course which makes it a great value comparatively. Our guides were fun, informative, understanding, and safety conscious. Plus the photos are hilarious! Lujon and Liz really made the experience exciting. Make sure to... More

Our two guides, Colby and Clay were the best. They made our zip lining trip fun and exciting! They were very good at explaining the equipment that we were using to keep us safe. The equipment was high quality and clean. We went mid-week and were able to get suited up and get on the zip lines quickly. The views... More

This was our first time zip lining and I was actually nervous beforehand. There was NO reason to be nervous, it was a piece of cake. Unless you have a really freaky fear of heights, this will not be a problem. It was a nice time with beautiful views but the zip lining was anti-climatic. This could be because we... More

My 11 year old daughters and my husband and I enjoyed the zip lines! The bridges added another level of excitement! What an adrenaline rush!

What can I say, WOW zipping through the woods of N.C. with our guides Elizabeth and Ian. Was amazing, felt safe as we rode the zip lines. Was funny and entertaining as it was exhilarating. Would do it again with no hesitation.
