Spend a beautiful day in the Nantahala Gorge beginning on a two hour Great Smoky Mountains Railroad, excursion where you and your guest will depart from the Bryson City, NC train depot.
After a paddling orientation your group will raft the entire 8 miles of the Nantahala River on a Follow-A-Guide raft trip. With constant waves and swift, clear current, the River is a delight for all ages. For approximately two hours, you and your guest, accompanied by a lead guide, a sweep guide, will experience Class I & II Rapids with a Class III Rapid at the end of the adventure. Since the Nantahala River is a dam-controlled river, water flows are great throughout the season!
At the end of your rafting adventure, you will be shuttled you to the Rafting Center where your dry clothes, hot showers, and a picnic lunch buffet await. Transportation back to the train depot in Bryson City and back to your car is provided. So if you want to share a whitewater rafting experience of a lifetime, then this is the perfect gift!
