Explore North Carolina’s great outdoors with Nantahala Outdoor Center. As the nation’s largest outdoor recreation company, NOC has led adventures since it opened in 1972. Millions of guests visit there annually to embark on a diverse collection of 120 river and land-based activities including rafting, kayaking, horseback riding, zip-lining and so much more! They even have a retail shop for you to purchase all your rafting, hiking and camping gear as well as cool souvenirs!
My family always enjoys visiting for their guided Rafting tours that take you on a trip through the Nantahala River. If you’ve never been white water rafting let me put your mind at ease. Life vests and a tour guide are provided for the duration of the trip. The only requirements are you have to be at least 7 years old and at least 60 pounds. On the ride, you encounter rock spins and thrilling white water rapids. After splashing in the river, don’t forget to collect your family photos that are located in the small gift shop where you get off. I suggest you bring a change of clothes because you will be soaked when you return from your adventure. Bathrooms and changing rooms are provided as well as other amenities. When you are all dry go to the River’s End restaurant! There you can taste delicious American favorites, including their signature hand-tossed Barn Door pizza.
