What to Expect on Your Whitewater Paddling Trip

Nothing combines all of the best that Asheville has to offer for the thrill seeker than a paddling trip on the scenic and breathtaking Upper Green River. Known around the world for the exciting and consistent whitewater that it provides this area, we will paddle the Upper Green (not the infamous “Narrows” that hosts the Green River race). We will paddle the trip on safe and fun inflatable kayaks flowing over the amazing class III and IV rapids through the pristine and remote Green River Game Lands. We will paddle 5 miles of spectacular and heart pumping rapids taking numerous stops to enjoy this beautiful river and capture some photos of you sending these fun rapids. After a big round of high fives when we are finished paddling we will take a short hike out of the gorge to our shuttle back to Asheville where a few well earned cold beers are waiting for us at our shop.

Note: Our guides are all swift water rescue certified and safety is always our highest priority. We will begin each trip with an in depth safety lesson and each trip is staffed by two of our highly qualified guides. We recommend that guests on this trip have at least some paddling experience or are in moderately good shape. If you are unsure if you fit this profile, we recommend to first book our Scenic French Broad paddle and then move up to this trip.
