Quick Details

Adult Ages 13+
Child Ages 7-12

Float Along the Historic Biltmore Estate and More in Asheville!

Take in the historic sites and beauty of Asheville while floating along the French Broad River! We will meet at the river where we will load up into a high-quality commercial raft. This is a leisurely float through a scenic portion of the French Broad River. This trip is 7 miles and this section of the river will give us the best chance to see wildlife – Egrets, Herons, Swallows, River Otters, and Ducks are all likely. Bring your binoculars!

This section will float us past the historic Biltmore Estate with great photo opportunities. This is a very scenic section of the river and is perfect for families and children of all ages. There are a couple of fun Class 1 rapids too! You will stay dry on this trip while seeing beautiful scenery that you can only experience from a boat. We will end the river trip in West Asheville. Leave your car at Hominy Creek (trip end spot) and take an Uber or Lyft to Bent Creek River Park to meet your guide.
