Great time - did the canyoneering, zipline and the whitewater. Many thanks to Ryan, Holly.’c Ariel, Juice and Ally

Ryan Crim

This was our third trip with French Broad Adventures. They are very organized and safety conscious. We had a wonderful time and are already planning on next year.

Danalee Cook Pipes

This place is awesome. Have been coming here for years and somehow the experience keeps getting better. The people make a huge difference providing a good time while always feeling safe. They have rafting for experienced and novice, ziplining, and canyoneering (which is newer) available to try. The waterfall used for the repelling is awesome. The treehouse stop on the ziplining is ridiculous. Definitely add this to your Asheville vacation, you wont regret it!

John Vagianos

Our Family did both whitewater rafting and zip lines. Sean was our River guide and he was great. Matt and Lilly were our guides for the Zip lines and they were great as well. We will definitely be back!!

Derek Jackson

Great day spent with experienced guides! A wonderful way to make memories!

Kristen Owen Samples

Mitch & Michael are always great taking care of our group before we get there and the guides do a 5-star job taking care of us once we arrive. This go round was guided by Jonah & Timmy. 10/10 recommend!
