We went on the whitewater rafting trip and mountain top zip lining excursion. The staff at High Mountain Expeditions was relatively young but very professional and knowledgeable about the river. We had a group ranging in age from 11 to 65 and everyone had a great time. Whitewater rafting was fairly easy and relaxing, keep in mind to wear good... More

My grandparents took our family on this river more than 20 years ago. It looked like the same outpost....However, when my youngest seemed big enough, it was time to take the next generation. The girls were nervous, but excited about this part of their vacation. Our guide made the trip fun, easygoing, and exciting. He gave us plenty of opportunities... More

I don't have enough time to describe all that I enjoy about this place. You can enjoy this place regardless of your budget. Visit their website for all the details, what ever it is you decide to do here, I'd find it unimaginable that you wouldn't have a great time doing it. And because High Mountain Expeditions is surrounded by... More

Just got back from the High Mountain Expeditions Outdoor Center with my Boy Scout Troop. High Mountain took care of us like no other outfitter on the river could have! After High Mountain transported us to the start of our trek on the Appalachian Trail (3 day 27 miles of backpacking) backpacking trip we rafted for two days with High... More

While visiting Boone for the week, we decided to book a full day rafting trip through High Mountain Expeditions after reading great reviews - we chose the Nolichucky River. The whole trip was super organized from start to finish, and we had two rafts go in our group and both of the guides were great guys - lots of fun... More

I had to rate this experience as a 1 due to the fact that I was lied to. Aside from that, the experience was enjoyable and the guides were great. I signed up to do a funyack trip down the Nolichucky River. I was told when we arrived that the waters were too high to safely navigate the river in... More

There are a few over night tasting trips out there but this one was way cheaper and nearly all inclusive! This company works very hard to make sure that their customers are happy. The rafting is awesome and the camping was the easiest experience ever! The snacks and food that they cook and serve is outstanding! The bonus of a... More

This is the second time our family has visited this part of North Carolina and the second rafting experience as well. This was by far our most enjoyable experience. We had a busload of 25 people plus guides for a raft trip down the Nolichucky. I found the guides both friendly and knowledgeable about the river and area. They were... More

My husband and I are recent graduates (2011) from ASU and went up for a long weekend. I looked at several companies and we decided to go with HME. Excellent choice. I called 30 minutes before we wanted to go, they took our reservation and emailed me a receipt. We showed up and the young man just needed to see... More

My family had a fantastic experience with High Mountain Expeditions. The guides were friendly and chatty on the bus ride down and we had a great guide on the river. From start to finish is was a lovely day.
