High Mountain Expeditions in Banner Elk, North Carolina

NOLICHUCKY RIVER- Class 3 and 4 rapids, the best whitewater in the area! On the river for eleven miles 3 1/2 to 4 hours. The river follows a deep narrow gorge, starting in the Pisgah and ending in the Cherokee National Forest. We provide transportation to and from the river, equipment, lunch, and a guide in each raft.

WATAUGA RIVER- Class 1 and 3 rapids, great introduction into whitewater. Instruction will be given on rafts, types of strokes and river safety. We will provide transportation to and from the river, equipment, lunch, and a guide in each raft.

WILSON CREEK- The Wilson Creek is by far my favorite white water rafting in North Carolina, steep creeking at its best. This creek drops 85 feet per mile and is the ride of a lifetime dropping over 5 to 10 foot ledges. Everyone will be paddling one-man inflatable funyaks that are very forgiving yet lots of fun.
