WHITE WATER RAFTING IN THE SMOKIES
Spanning two beautiful states, Tennessee and North Carolina, Great Smoky Mountains National Park is a mecca for paddle adventures, and you won’t find a better outfitter than Nantahala Outdoor Center, named One of the Best Outfitters on Earth by National Geographic Adventure. For more than 40 years, NOC has pioneered white water rivers in 35 countries, hosted four world championships and produced 22 Olympians, including two gold medalists. NOC’s own 500-acre center offers other Smoky Mountain adventures, like zip lining, mountain biking and paddleboarding. Stay at a cabin adjoining the Appalachian Trail.
