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. There’s a reason this trip was voted the number 1 paddling trip in Asheville on TripAdvisor, 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.
