About Asheville Hiking Tours
Let the local experts guide you to our favorite “secret spots” along the Blue Ridge Parkway and in our National Forests. Home to 250+ waterfalls and miles of hiking trails, the stunning scenery does not disappoint. Our tours provide a unique blend of storytelling, sightseeing and nature discovery! We visit historical sights and 150-foot waterfalls, and even enjoy wild food foraging on all of our tours. Our aim to provide a soul-nurturing experience in the outdoors is the reason why our guests return to experience these mountains with us, again and again! If you have a half day to spend with us, we recommend the Waterfalls and Blue Ridge Parkway Tour so you can capture multiple highlights of western North Carolina, including the iconic Blue Ridge Parkway, historic sites and “secret” hidden waterfalls. For those who have just a few hours to spend with us, we recommend the Guided 2-Hour Waterfall Hike. Private Tours, fully customizable, are also available and offer a range of hikes!

My family had a blast with Eli and Nat. They pointed out the highlights along the Blue Ridge Parkway that we passed by. They had a wealth of knowledge on the flora and fauna of the area. We were only expecting a little hiking and a few waterfalls, but we also got a lot of interesting facts about plants and fungi. We even learned how to recognize poison ivy and stinging nettle and how to treat them. And we even saw some mushrooms. Our 9-year old was disappointed that we won't be doing our second hike with Eli and Nat.

Shannon was an engaging & knowledgeable guide. Even when it rained, she continued to help us explore the beauty of the mountains. Enjoyed the unique experience of chewing on flavorful leaves! Her extensive knowledge of the history and area background was wonderful. Would go again with her.

Wonderful day! Great time with Eli as our guide. She was very knowledgeable and very enthusiastic. We hiked to a couple of waterfalls and stopped at some scenic overlooks. The hikes were nothing too strenuous. The waterfalls were beautiful. Highly recommend this tour.

This was a wonderful experience. Our guide, Eli, was very informative and professional, with a brilliant personality to boot. The chosen hikes were catered to our group which was really appreciated. The overlooks were fantastic, same as the waterfalls. Thank you for the adventure!
