Whitewater Rafting

Ready to get wet and have some fun? The thrills won’t stop when you book a whitewater rafting trip to Western North Carolina. Check out the exceptional rates on our North Carolina cabin rentals located in Burnsville, Spruce Pine, and Wolf Laurel. We are nestled conveniently close in to Asheville, the Linville Gorge, and the Blue Ridge Parkway. Whitewater rafting is a fun activity to enjoy, no matter your rafting level. If you are looking to spend some time on the water on your trip, book one of the Pristine Properties vacation rentals. Several of the available Vacation Rentals North Carolina that we offer feature trout streams, and scenes along the rivers in our area.
The Toe River is the closest river that whitewater rafting guide companies offer float and rafting trips on. It is a safe river for younger children and individual tubing trips are available. You can rent a watercraft or book a guided whitewater rafting trip.

About an hour from us, you’ll find the French Broad river. This popular whitewater rafting river is well known! It features safe class I-IV rapids and some nice views and scenes. Most guides in the area offer a shorter 5-mile trip on this river, that passes over Class I-III rapids, making it ideal for most groups of beginners. A longer trip is available on the river, and takes you over a higher class of rapids including some Class IV’s. 

The area’s white water rafting guides in NC all offer trips to beginners as well as experienced rafters. If you are looking for a calmer trip, you can book a calm water float excursion rather than a rip roaring white water rafting package. Most guides in the area feature several watercraft options as well depending on the trip or river that you choose to book.
