Western North Carolina is a dream vacation destination and we take advantage of everything WNC has to offer: whitewater rafting on three great rivers, white water kayak instruction, fly fishing, scenic lake tours and a store overlooking the Nantahala River. And when winter arrives, we take our expertise to Costa Rica and Ecuador for more great outdoor adventures.

My two sons and I had our first whitewater rafting experience, so glad we selected Endless River Adventures. After reading reviews for ERA and other outfitters, I was drawn to ERA's small approach to doing business. Our guide Rich was upbeat and knowledgeable, providing plenty of information about the area during our adventure down the Nantahala. The boys are already... More

I have taken three different trips with Endless River Adventures. All have been equally amazing! One trip was with a ladies group of friends and the other two were both with my family (husband and two children). The guides are very friendly and accommodating and made the trip down the river safe and fun!

What a terrific time we had on the Nantahala with Endless River Adventures! Customer service is a priority here, so dealing with Fawn during the booking and check-in was great. I really appreciated the “mom and pop” feel of the place – they don’t have giant buses with 10 rafts strapped to the top – ERA is a small shop... More

We are from Florida traveling with three teenagers. We decided on Endless River after hearing several recommendations from area locals. We own our own tour company and understand the value of a great tour guide. Endless River has it down pat. Great guides who made our full day of rafting on the Ocoee fun safe and educational.

From the beginning safety was made to be known it was a priority. The guides were professional, knowledgeable, and exciting from the beginning to the end. Everyone had... More

My friends and I spent 5 days of kayak instruction with the ERA professionals. We went out on multiple rivers in the area including the Nantahala, Ocoee, Chattooga, and Tuckasegee Rivers. The kayak instructors meet you at your skill level from a beginner to the experienced kayaker. Highly recommended company that always puts safety first Great staff - many thanks... More

Had a great rafting trip down the Ocoee with ERA. Went with Red, Danny, Michael, and Brandon. These guys were true professionals, but it was also like hanging out with friends.
