The Beauty and the Beast 

The Nantahala is Western
North Carolina’s most scenic
for whitewater rafting in the
Smokies — eight miles of rugged
mountain beauty interrupted by twenty
stretches of  Class II rapids, beginning with “Patton’s Run” and ending with the Class III beast, “Lesser Wesser.”  While the “Nanny” is a river to be respected, it is not fearsome. Its rapids provide training for Olympic kayakers and thrills for paddlers from age 7 to 70 alike.
Best Value      Appalachian Rivers Outpost of Carolina Outfitters, Inc. has been providing affordable guided and unguided rafting excursions on the Nantahala since 1979. We’re known for reliable, competent service both on and off the river, quality equipment, and reasonable rates for individuals and groups seeking a memorable whitewater rafting experience in the Smokies.
       Call us now to reserve your spot in one of our six- or eight-man rafts, for a guided, guide-assisted or self-guided rafting trip. And for even more whitewater action, try our one or two person inflatable funyaks (”duckies”). We’re open Monday thru Saturday, April through October. Walk-ins are accepted, but we strongly recommend reservations.
