North Carolina whitewater rafting is a popular activity when in the Blue Ridge Mountains around Boone and the High Country. Whether you want to experience the heart pounding rapids or just a leisurely coast down a river, there are ample opportunities to go North Carolina whitewater rafting.

In Boone NC and the surrounding towns you’ll find several professional whitewater guide shops that offer guided North Carolina whitewater rafting trips on the Nolichucky River or Watauga River. These spots offer higher classes of rapids and require experienced guides to help you and your group maneuver. We have provided some links and information on the local guide shops below.

The New River and the many tributaries of the Watauga River make excellent spots to enjoy leisurely rafting for those that don’t want to experience the roaring rapids. Spend the day rafting down the river and enjoy the scenery. You can rent a raft from one of the local guide shops or bring your own from home, the New River is the perfect lazy river for those that just enjoy floating down the river.
