White Water Rafting in the Blue Ridge Mountains

Ready for some White Water Rafting in the Blue Ridge Mountains? 

You can expect big smiles while getting soaked - a delightful reprieve from the hot sun. Of course there are some calm spots for resting and enjoying the beautiful scenery. Stops can include breaks for swimming and rock jumping. Guides are often entertaining and humorous and they provide most of the paddling and steering. They really earn their pay, loading and unloading the gear and giving great advice to ensure a safe and fun time on the river. Of course, rafting can be enjoyed both rain or shine making for easy planning. Below you’ll find our extensive list of white water rafting as well as other fun and exciting water sports and adventures including canoeing, kayaking, paddle boarding, and tubing.
