Breathtaking Smoky Mountain Zip Line Adventures
NOC offers five aerial and zip line adventures with something for every one and every budget.
Our signature course is NOC's Mountaintop Zip Line Tour. There are many zip line canopy tours, but there are none like the Mountaintop. The Mountaintop is perched on the rim of the Nantahala Gorge, over 600 feet above the Nantahala River below, featuring 360-degree views of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the Nantahala Gorge.
While most zip line tours glide from tree to tree in forest canopies, the Mountaintop flies from ridgeline to ridgeline, culminating in the longest zip line in the region, a dramatic half-mile mega zip.
For the less adventurous, try NOC's Zip Line Adventure Park or "ZLAP." Located adjacent to NOC's Nantahala rafting operation, the ZLAP features 16 aerial adventure elements, from beginner to advanced, along with an exciting 600-foot dual zipline. Riders can weigh as little as 60 pounds.
Both activities are easily combined with a Nantahala rafting trip for a day of adventure. For groups, we also offer our Alpine Tower and Wesser Ridge Tree Climb.
