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

Just do it. If you're afraid of heights, go. The guides will keep you safe and by the end you'll be the first person zipping off that platform. If you have kids, take 'em. They'll be talking about it for days. If you want a thrill, go. You can control the speed and make it your own adventure. If you... More

As senior citizens, we decided to zip line at the Canopy Tour. It was fabulous. There is a brief demo. before the "adventure" begins. The guides were professional and helpful. It was a blast. I recommend this property, no matter your age you will have an enjoyable time. They are safety minded and very helpful. It is a must if... More

My husband and I had such a fun time doing this trip last summer, we had to bring our three children this year! Our children ages 15, 13 and 10 had never done anything like this before. They were not disappointed! Raven and Justin led our group on a such a fun outing! Great activity to do with your children... More

I wanted an adventure for my children this year and booked the canopy tour. I was not expecting it to be such a workout but I broke a sweat. Despite being sweaty, we had a fabulous time. Our guides were encouraging, patient, and just overall awesome. Cannot wait to book another adventure!

This was the highlight of our trip. From making the reservations, driving directions, pre-flight instructions, it was very competent. The guides were enthusiastic and very safety conscious. They remembered each person's name, nine total. They made me feel very safe. The view at the top was amazing. We saw the passenger train travel along Fontana Lake!

My 15 yr old daughter and I planned a weekend getaway to raft and zip line. We did the zip line canopy tour today and despite the rain, our guides made it fun. Colby and Jonathan were very entertaining and they educated us on leaves and trees! We chewed a leaf that tasted like a granny smith apple too. It... More

Did the Nantahala Gorge Canopy Tour with Colby and Nate. We had a large family reunion group, and they did a great job of engaging all different ages - and making sure we all felt confident and comfortable at every zip and bridge. In spite of starting out in the rain, we all had a great time!

We recently experienced the Nantahala River Fully Guided Raft Trip and were very pleased with the experience. Our family of four (two boys 16 & 10) were masterfully guided by our experienced and engaging guide Nicole. Her knowledge of the river allowed us to chose routes and maneuvers to maximize or minimize the "splash factor" depending on the raft occupants.... More

Rarely, do we ever get a chance to enjoy days off and go anywhere. My wife and I, have been talking about ziplining for a while. We finally "jumped" (pun intended). What a ride!! Raven and Dana couldn't have made it more fun. An excellent dynamic duo that helped us understand and complete the training and zipping along the canopy... More
