French Broad Adventures was absolutely amazing! I did a few of their adventures and had a blast doing all of them! The guides and office stand were all outstanding! I am recommending this place to anyone I know coming up to the Asheville area!

Rafting was an unbelievable experience. The water was at a very high flow and the boat flipped as well. The rescue was smooth and quick . Zipline was a relaxing affair and fun.

Our second raft trip with French Broad Adventures. They are very organized. Guides are very skilled and safety conscientious. We had our 9 yo and 11 yo with us . Rapids were thrilling enough but not crazy wild. Good time. Tim was great guide. Thanks!
