The crystal-clear Nantahala River is the perfect family-friendly river. Enjoy delightful mountain scenery and playful rapids in the spectacular Nantahala Gorge. Your raft will splash through bouncing waves and spin on fast currents under the guidance of a highly-trained NOC river guide. Occasional calm spots give rafters a chance to soak in the forest, wildflowers and each other’s company. The Nantahala is an annual ritual for thousands of NOC’s families.
