Whitewater rapids are nature's roller coaster and should always be followed up with a bite of nature's cotton candy—wadded-up moss. Go wild with this Groupon.

Excursions start as rafters are outfitted and given a pre-trip briefing. The 8.5-mile trip winds down the Nantahala River’s Class I, II, and III rapids. As groups traverse the Nantahala Wesser Falls at the end of the trip, staff snap photos of them, which they can view in an online gallery and print from CD. Trips include all equipment and transportation to the launch and exit points. Customers may also apply their Groupon to the cost of a guided rafting trip or an inflatable kayak trip.

Paddle Inn Rafting Company

With years and years of experience navigating the river's rapids, the Thomas family has some strong opinions about which watercraft provide the best experience. When they first got started, they weren't able to find any with all the features they wanted, so they decided to design their own. Paddle Inn's signature rafts were created specifically for riding the Nantahala River, and they boast a number of features intended to provide the optimal experience, including urethane undersides, which allow the rafts to easily slide over the occasional rock or kraken.

The rafts transports patrons down the river on guided trips and self-guided excursions aboard rafts in multiple sizes, as well as inflatable kayaks. These vessels can accommodate couples all the way up to groups of eight. After a trip, river trekkers can dry off by perching next to a crackling fire or spinning around in a circle really fast.

It was great we paid the extra for the guide and were very glad we did. Ron was excellent and shared with us the history of the area and made the paddle down the river the highlight of our trip. I would definitely recommend paddle inn.
