My husband and I booked a rock climbing trip with this company. It was amazing!! We had never been rock climbing before. Our guides Josh and Carson were fantastic! They were extremely friendly and personable, yet very professional. They took their time explaining the equipment and techniques. We felt completely safe the whole time. Josh and Carson were so encouraging!!... More

Again we return for a trip down the New River. We traveled by kayak this time. A wonderful smooth paddling trip except for my husbands flip....ha, ha! Great adventure, beautiful scenery with a cool breeze and a visit from deer, goose, fish and many different birds. Carson and Madison were great guides and Grant was so easy to book with.... More

This was our second family trip down the French Broad with this company. We booked our trip the day of and when we arrived they were packing up for the day, but took us down the river anyway. We were provided with instruction even after we told them we had been before and felt very safe on our trip. Our... More

I did the full day ~5 hours white water trip. We had Aeon as our guide with Ian and Mike following in a separate raft for training. Aeon was a great guide, very funny and relaxed. What really made this trip great was the little details, like the guides preparing our lunches and even asking if we wanted seconds before... More

Great experience for our first time white water rafting! Our 5-year-old son loved it! Aeon was great with the kids & very knowledgeable on the river and surrounding area. We can't wait to raft the French Broad next.

Decided to escape the heat of Charlotte and head to the mountains for a spur of the moment trip. We chose to head to Boone, NC due to ease of commute and because it is a cool little college town. Upon looking for something to do we ran across an ad for River and Earth Adventures. Since the weather was... More

I highly recommend these guys! We had a extremely enjoyable day white water rafting on the French Broad. Our guide Aeion was amazing. He kept the kids entertained and made the day very memorable for our family of 4. You could tell he knew what he was doing and I never once felt afraid for my saftey or that of... More

Eon, Josh, Carson, John were outstanding guides! I took my wife and 3 teens who had never been WWR before and all I can say is they had a blast! Eon knew the river like the back of his hand and you could tell we got the best ride on the river! There were several other big companies on the... More

We went tubing with these guys for two hours down the watauga river. It was super relaxing and fun. We'll probably book the caving adventure next time we're in the area!

As I booked this outing, I couldn't help but notice how apprehensive my wife was. To the point of feeling sick the morning of our trip. She wasn't crazy about being on the water and isn't fond of tight spaces. When we got to the outpost and met our guides, Ryan and Ian, she started to relax. The caving was... More
