Rafting Trip Information

A whitewater rafting trip on the Nantahala River in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina is a great introduction to rafting, and a trip you will never forget. We pride ourselves on giving a great rafting trip experience each and every time. Carolina Outfitters wants all of our guest to have a memorable whitewater rafting trip, so we ask that you familiarize yourself with how a rafting trip works and what to expect by reading the trip information guidelines below.

Rafting Trip on the Nantahala River





The team at Carolina Outfitters would love to hear from you!

We also offer GROUP TRIPS, so grab your friends, civic club, youth groups, school, family, fraternity, sorority, employees, or church group and get on the Nantahala River near Bryson City, North Carolina for a day of pure excitement!  Ask about our Corporate Retreat group coordination. A day on the river is a great way to bring a team together or to reward a job well done.  Small business and corporate rafting groups get a chance to bond outside of work and get those creative endorphins flowing. Team building on the river is a great way to connect your team in and outside of the office.
