A One-of-a-Kind-Adventure Awaits

Canyoneering is an adventure sport that combines multiple outdoor adventures such as hiking, boulder-hopping, and waterfall rappelling to traverse down a canyon, typically formed by a river. Until recently, canyoneering in the United States has been accessible mostly in the Southwest, but exploration of the rivers and waterfalls throughout Western North Carolina has turned up exquisite canyons and pristine waterfalls perfectly suited to this emerging sport. FBA is thrilled to offer guests the opportunity to go where the average tourist will never get to go, and experience firsthand the waterfalls and river canyons that make this area so spectacular.
