This is one of the best sections of the French Broad river to paddle if you want a scenic and exciting trip just outside of the heartbeat of downtown Asheville. We will paddle several exciting but safe class 2 rapids as we float through the breathtaking Southern Appalachian Mountains of the Asheville valley. We will conclude with an adventure around Alexander Island, likely the most unique island on the river. The French Broad is one of the oldest rivers in the world and has endless history hidden in its sandy banks. Each trip is kept to a limited number of guests and led by an experienced guide. All of our guides are Asheville residents and can provide a unique perspective about our city. This tranquil afternoon on the river will be the highlight of your trip!
What You'll Get
Enjoy this 4 mile scenic and exciting float down the French Broad near our home base in Asheville. We will paddle along the majestic French Broad river through some exciting class 2-3 rapids. We'll all paddle our individual kayaks, also known as “duckies,” which are a stable and exciting way to see a new river. It’s like a raft that you can paddle yourself! At the conclusion, we'll pass by walnut island before taking the scenic drive back to our shop. It will be the highlight of your trip!
