The Nantahala Adventure Pass combines four of NOC’s most popular activities in one package with up to $70 in savings per person! Enjoy a guided whitewater rafting down the Nantahala River, traversing the Zip Line Adventure Park, mountain biking on our Flint Ridge trail systems, and lake paddling with sit on top kayaks or stand up paddle boards! Take advantage of Nantahala Outdoor Center’s most convenient and popular multi-activity offering!

First, begin by selecting the time for your exciting whitewater adventure down the Nantahala River. Pick a morning raft trip for a splashy whitewater ride followed by an afternoon biking on the Flint Ridge Trail and Zip Lining at the canopy Adventure Park. End the day with a peaceful lake paddle with a sit on top kayak or stand up paddleboard rental.

Or… get your adrenaline fix in the morning with a mountain bike tour on NOC’s Flint Ridge Trail. Next, head to the Zip Line Adventure Park to race on the 550’ Wesser zip line. Don’t forget to take a break for a riverside lunch! Round off the day with an afternoon of bouncing waves and fast currents as your whitewater rafting guide shares information about the area’s flora, fauna, and rich culture.

The adventure is yours for the taking, no matter how you choose to arrange this exciting portfolio of outdoor activities!

During the fall we recommend the River-to-Ridge package, Nantahala Fully Guided rafting trips, and the Mountaintop Zip Line Tour.
