We took 2 separate trips with this company in one week. We did the family whitewater rafting tour and we went tubing. Both experiences were great! I would recommend both and we will definitely be doing both again. Our tubing guide Charley was awesome. The river was up high that week because of rain and he made sure to jump... More

We took a tubing trip with High Mountain Expeditions this past weekend. Had a skittish 9 year old with us so thought this was an easy way to get him used to water adventures. The guides were very friendly and patient - one thing I would say is I didn't know, maybe didn't read the site well enough, but didn't... More

Junior Girl Scout troop 3414 from Durham just finished the overnight rafting trip this weekend with Parker, Kelby and Alex as our guides. All 3 of them were fantastic with the girls. They worked hard to make sure the girls had a great time and that they were as safe as possible. I highly recommend this overnight trip, High Mountain... More

The wife & I had done a couple of prior white water excursion across the country...but based on the weather (rain had the river cranking) and the HME team....a new level has been reached. We had a great time! We went on a Monday, just after school started and we had the ONLY boat on the river! We never saw... More

We went on an all day white water rafting trip with High Mountain Expeditions this week and it was awesome. We have been on other rafting trips in Colorado and Utah but this one was by far the best. Safety was the number one concern of our guides but having fun was second and they truly showed us a good... More

We started off our adventure by booking white water rafting on Sunday, that gave my wife enough time to totally get herself SCARED STIFF. We arrived at HME early, staff was already there with bus loaded, ready and enthusiastic. Wife still stiff. A little over a hour ride to "put in" the spot where the rafts are launched into the...

The guide, Kelby, was a super nice gentlemen. The adventure was great! It did rain on us but no thunder/lightning so we just sat in the chilly rain and floated on. Quick shower then the sun came out. My family and I had a blast! Good memories!! Great company to deal with!!

I wanted to take my husband white water rafting with our 6 girls for his birthday and we chose High Mountain based on the professionalism and excitement that the booking agent provided over the phone. I found their website along with several others and they seemed so closely similar but after calling I had no hesitation to choose this company.... More

Great time with Dallas. Little bit of a bus ride. Take money for the stops going and coming. Take a change of clothes before getting back on bus. Very enjoyable experience.

We took our three kids on the Wautauga River Trip and had a great time. The guides were entertaining and were really great in getting the kids involved. Try the jump rock!
