There's nothing more relaxing than floating down a cool, calm river in the thick of summer! Let REI take the hassle out of spending a day on the water with this self-guided tubing experience on a beautiful stretch of Asheville's French Broad River. Meet us at the Smoky Park Supper Club where the shuttle driver will bring you 4-miles upstream to begin your 3-hour mosey downriver. This section of the French Broad winds with a gentle current through tree-lined banks from the Biltmore to the Asheville River Arts District. You *will* get wet, so swimwear is encouraged. Float at your own pace until the river's mellow current brings you back to where we started at the Smoky Park Supper Club. This is a wonderful way to spend a warm summer day, and we can't wait for you to enjoy this lazy river with us! Tube, life jacket, optional cooler carrier, optional paddle, and shuttle included.
