Zip Lining & Aerial Adventures
Experience the Nantahala Gorge and Smoky Mountains with a zip line adventure! NOC offers a variety of itineraries at our 500-acre Bryson City campus, perfect for a half day, or combined with other river activities for a full day of fun.
Soar high above the trees with our signature Mountaintop Zip Line! Perched on the rim of the Nantahala Gorge, guests glide over 350 feet above the Nantahala River below, with spectacular 360-degree views of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the Nantahala Gorge.
For a milder adventure closer to ground level, try NOC’s Zip Line Adventure Park or “ZLAP.” Located a short walk from the river, the ZLAP features 16 aerial adventure elements, from beginner to advanced, along with an exciting 600-foot long dual zipline. This course is also great for custom groups and team building.
