There are countless rafting adventure outfits from which to choose, but (for our family at least) the choice is clear -- River and Earth Adventures, Inc. These guys are not about merely moving bodies down the river. They engage with all adventurers to ensure that everyone is having a GREAT time. Our guide was Josh and the other boats were... More

My family of 5 went down the French Broad river today and had a blast! Our guides, Ian, Logan and Josh were all great. They made sure that everyone on the trip had fun and was safe. There are lots of rafting companies to choose from, we were happy to support a local family run business. We will definitely be... More

There are many companies to go with for white water rafting on French Broad river. They all have almost the same equipment(boats, safety gear etc) so the only differentiator are the guides. River and Earth adventures has the BEST ! We had a great time last week with Carson, Logan & team. They took the time to focus on what... More

You can't go to Boone without planning an outing with River and Earth Adventures! We took the kiddos there for a gem mining adventure and loved that we could also tube, raft, hike or go caving too! Centrally located, reasonably priced and locally owned! Grant, the owner, is super friendly and passionate about his business and his customers...he even took... More

We had such a great time exploring Worley's Cave as one of our day trips while visiting Boone! We booked our trip through River and Earth, and they made the whole thing seem like a breeze. Our tour guide -Ian- was awesome. He equipped us all with some helmets and headlights and made everyone feel safe and confident in their... More

Our guide Ian took us on an excellent tour of the entire cave. From climbing the Devils Horn to walking through an underground river I would recommend this trip to anyone who is looking for something new and exciting to try. Big thanks to Ian for making this trip a memorable one.

I want to thank Ian our tour guide and the whole team at River and Earth adventures for the wonderful experience that was spelunking in that enormous cave for hours and walking on a underground river, it was simply magic! Ian was the best, really professional, always worried about our safety but also really funny and easy going. I will... More
