If you enjoy nature, you will love Navitat. We had a party of 6. - 2 adults and 4 children between 11-14. The guides were wonderful. They explained everything to us, making us feel very safe. They also gave us details about the trees, plants and history of the land. I am actually afraid of heights but still managed to... More

We did the Blue Ridge Experience with the 3 long zip lines. These zips are really fast and high in addition to really long. Plus the view is fabulous. Also, our guides, Max and Michelle did a great job of making us feel welcome and prepared. Highly recommended!

Half of our party had never zipped before. Our guide was fantastic, and made the entire experience enjoyable for all. We chose the newer attraction, Blue Ridge Experience, and it didn't disappoint. You get tons of speed on the longer zips. From our vantage point, we had 50-mile views (clear day, and beautiful weather). I would highly recommend this excursion.

This, legitimately, was the best part of our trip to the Asheville area. It was a blast: our tour guides were friendly, entertaining, and knowledgeable (even helping us out with other different places to check out on our vacation); the forest was beautiful; and the ziplines, themselves, were exhilarating. Of course, the first couple were short, and easy so you... More

What an exciting way to end a vacation! The staff at Navitat have it together. Next time I'm up this way-I'm doing the all day tour! Although my tummy did a flip on the trial"zip" Not once was I concerned about my safety. Our guide was Alana and she knew her stuff! She was pleasant, funny and knowledgeable about the... More

As a first time zip liner I have to say that I was expecting a carnival type , stand in line experience but it was nothing like this at all. You book your time and when you arrive there are no lines, no standing in the heat, you wait for your guides to show up and they pay 100% attention... More

We did the Blue Ridge Experience and it was amazing. There were four of us, ages 25-40, and none of us had been on a zipline before this. Staff was professional and focused on safety. Our two guides, Aaron and Brennon, were an awesome team. They were knowledgeable about the local plant life and wildlife and did a great job... More

Not my first adventurous outdoor experience but the first for ziplining. I think it fortunate my first was a Navitat. To those fearful of an outdoor experience that may seem a little scary - face it, not many people are comfortable with high heights- this is the place to go. Having done some outdoor experiences that safety was not taken... More

We did both the Moody Cove and Blue Ridge zip line experience. So glad we did both-each unique. Our guides were great and we felt they take safety very seriously. My husband and I had done a zip line on a cruise- this was by far a better experience. We would do this again. If you want to try zip... More
