Nolichucky River Paddling

Nolichucky River Gorge


The Nolichucky River Gorge winds through steep-walled canyons and remotethickly-forested mountains. The Noli is one of the best whitewater rafting runs in the Southeast and is said to be one of the most technicalbigwater runs in the South, demanding the coordinated efforts of the paddlers and an experienced guide to negotiate the twists, turns, drops and falls of the river. This adventure is a true wilderness experience and takes the rafter through the breathtaking rugged beauty of the backwoods of the Pisgah and Cherokee National forest.  We recommend hooking up with Blue Heron Whitewater if your gonna be in the Asheville area and Wahoos Adventures for the High Country and Boone area.
