North Carolina Whitewater Rafting Rivers
We run white water raft trips on the Nantahala River and the French Broad River in North Carolina. The Nantahala is known around the world as some of the best family whitewater anywhere. The French Broad runs big in the spring and mellows into the summer, providing a fun paddle through the Pisgah National Forest.
Cheoah River — Robinsville, North Carolina
The Cheoah River is a nine mile, non-stop thrill ride with steep tumbling rapids and several large drops, including the fifteen foot tall Bear Creek Falls. The last two miles have an average gradient of 200 feet per mile. Compared to other rivers like the Ocoee or the Gauley at 65 feet per mile, the Cheoah River pushes white water rafting to the edge.
Nantahala River — Bryson City, North Carolina
The Nantahala River is one of the most popular rivers in the south. Families drive from all over to ride this spectacular and picturesque river. Nestled deep in the Nantahala National Forest near the southern edge of the Great Smoky National Park, the “Nanny” gives the beginning rafter a playful, enjoyable and scenic introduction to rafting.
French Broad River — Marshall, North Carolina
The French Broad River is a gorgeous free flowing river will delight even the most seasoned outdoors people. Sometimes spirited, other time playful, the French Broad is always charming and never boring. Water volume is seasonal, with the spring thaw bringing big waves and the summer months providing more of a scenic float trip through the Pisgah National Forest. This river offers something for everyone.
