Trip Description

Paddle this breathtaking 4 mile stretch of the French Broad located just outside of downtown Asheville during one of the most beautiful times of day to be on the water. We will be treated with plenty of wildlife as we paddle through the twists and turn of this iconic river. This trip will take us over numerous class II and III rapids which will add plenty of excitement. We will each paddle our own ducky on this 3 hour trip. Ducky’s are inflatable kayaks and they are an exciting way to navigate any river that is suitable for all paddling abilities. 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.
