Come out to experience Western North Carolina's great adventure of flight lead by the most experienced adventure outfitter in the south, Wildwater and Adventure America Zipline Canopy Tour's. Asheville Zipline Canopy Adventures is their newest and closest to Asheville just 1 mile from downtown yet set in the tree tops of 150+ year old oaks. The Asheville location is the only year round facility available. The Nantahala Gorge location (One of four additional locations to choose from) was the first canopy tour adventure in the region. This 2.5 to 3 hour tour includes 11 zipline sections and 5 sky bridges on over 22 acres of deep woods and scenic mountain vistas. Your tour is not only an adventure but an opportunity to learn about the history, culture, plants, and wildlife that make Western NC so unique. This experience is like soaring at birdseye view through grand white oaks, blooming frazier magnolias, flame azaleas, thick mountain laurel and rhododendron. Learn and see the plight of the Hemlock and efforts being taken to save this majestic tree in danger of disappearing in the region. Canopy Rangers escort each small group throughout the tour to share knowledge and lead your experience.
