Wahoo's Adventures in Boone, NC & Elizabethton, TN offers Nolichucky River white water rafting, Nolichucky River rafting guide service, and other Nloichucky River adventures.  Nestled deep in the Appalachian mountains of western North Carolina and eastern Tennessee; the Nolichucky River Gorge winds through steep-walled canyons and remote thickly forested mountains. One of the TOP TEN whitewater rafting river runs in the nation can be found just outside of the High Country of NC; the Nolichucky River is said to be one of the most technical bigwater runs in the south, demanding the coordinated efforts of the raft “crew” and an experienced guide to negotiate the twists, turns, drops and falls of the river.



Our Nolichucky rafting trip is a true wilderness adventure, taking the rafter through the breathtaking rugged beauty of the backwoods of the Pisgah and Cherokee National forest. The sheer rock walls of the canyon tower 2,800 feet from the base of the river to the pine-covered peaks of the mountains. A true natural treat for any family planning a Whitewater Rafting Trip during their vacation to the Asheville, Boone, Blowing Rock, Banner Elk, and Johnson City, TN areas.

Nolichucky River Rafting

Portions of the Nolichucky flow through an area which is designated by the National Forest Service as a Black Bear Sanctuary. The tracks of these large animals can often be seen along the banks of the river, and a sharp eye on the woods during a rest stop in a protected eddy will sometimes yield the rafter with a glimpse of a bear in its natural habitat.

The river begins in Poplar, NC and drops approximately 66-feet per mile over the first four miles, creating adrenalin pumping Class III, IV and V rapids.  Halfway through the day you will cross the Tennessee border which will lead to Twin Eddies Rapid which will be sure to provide that last rush of excitement for those who venture down this river. The run can be enjoyed by all but the youngest children. Past trips have included the blind, Boy Scouts, church groups and professional groups.

As with all of Wahoo’s Adventures, a trip on the Nolichucky begins with a training/safety session. Even the first-time paddler will soon be learning how to properly navigate fast moving whitewater, so whether you are staying in Asheville, North Carolina or Eastern Tennessee, be sure to enjoy the gem of the NC rafting industry, The Nolichucky River.

All of the tours on the Nolichucky include a lunch catered by guides. They'll serve you a delicious Gourmet Deli Buffet lunch with fresh deli meats, peanut butter and jelly, and veggies/fruit, cheeses.
