The area around Nantahala is what you'd consider a perfect example of North Carolina beauty- mountains, waterfalls and lots of green. The outdoor center is a nice place, and they have a fantastic system to get you in your raft and down the Nantahala River. We had a fantastic time, and used the self-guided option since we had rafted before.... More

I can't say enough about how great the NOC experience was. We did the train ride from Bryson City to the NOC center & then whitewatered for the rest of the day. What an amazing time! The river guide we had was absolutely wonderful & I think he knew we were a group that he could push some limits because... More

We headed to NC in early June to celebrate my 40th birthday with three other couples. The Nolichucky was recommended to us by a local friend of ours. This was by far, my husband and mine's best rafting experience. We have been about a half dozen times. Jordan was the first guide that we met and she gave the presentation... More

I recently went on a road trip to Florida, and decided to do some adventure attractions on the way down. The Nolichucky gorge rafting excursion was by far my favorite. We were actually in our own duckies while another group was in a raft. Our fearless leader Jordan was amazing, she not only equipped us with consistent instruction but included... More

(June 19th) This was the best white water rafting trip we have ever taken! I had my 16 year old son and my best friend on the trip. The natural river scenery was breath taking and our guide was the best! He knew where to go on the river and guided our raft in the white water that gave us... More
