Whitewater Rafting

"Deliverance" from the Ordinary! 

Coasting-even crashing!-through rapids is perfect for the adrenaline-seeking adventurer.

Whitewater sports in the Boone Area are often at their most consistent from spring through early summer-but keep in mind that rafting is best after periods of rainfall-and that's not unusual in summer and fall in the East's highest mountains.

Don't let summer and even fall stop you! It's as easy as a call ahead to check conditions at a High Country outfitter.

Boone Area outfitters offer river excursions for every skill level; from gentle runs through riffles and moderate rapids suitable for young families to more extreme action and excitement for the adventurous (and that includes business groups where team-buidling is the goal). Whether you imagine yourself surging slowly through small rapids or dropping off a shelf into foaming whitewater below, rafting in the Boone Area is for you.

Touch base with the experienced, full service, safety-oriented outfitting businesses below and you'll soon find yourself on one of the North Carolina High Country's world-class waterways.
