Trip Description

Enjoy this 4 mile scenic and exciting float down the French Broad near our home base in Asheville. We will paddle along the majestic French Broad river through some exciting class II-III rapids with spectacular views of the surrounding Appalachian Mountains. We’ll all paddle our own individual inflatable kayaks, also known as “duckies,” which are a stable and exciting way to see a new river. It’s like a raft that you can paddle yourself! At the conclusion, we’ll pass by beautiful Walnut Island before taking the scenic drive back to our shop where we will finish with a cold beer. This trip is great for beginner paddlers and adventure junkies alike, it will be the highlight of your Asheville trip!

New in August 2020, we are now offering the option to float this trip in a raft with one of our many highly experienced guides. Rafting this section is a great option for kids and families alike! Call 828-417-7109 for more info or to book.
