Nantahala Guide in Raft

Nantahala Guide in Raft

The Nantahala River alternates between calm spells of sparkling flatwater to over 20 named rapids. This feisty river is a particular favorite of families with younger children. Our rafting trips run the full length of the river which will take you through eight miles of this area’s most scenic terrain. You will meet an array of lively rapids such as: Root Canal, the Isle of Dumping and Tumble Dry!


With our “Guide in Raft” option – you let the pros take charge! That doesn’t mean you won’t have a paddle and dig in, but you’ll be guided by a certified professional inside your raft calling out commands and leading the way.
