Nantahala Gorge Canopy Tours offers a 2-1/2 to 3 expereince with 13 different zip lines and 8 bridges with challenges. Our Rangers are trained to interpret the natural environment and offer a personal guided experience pointing out natural features along the way. Two new bridges and two new ziplines added in 2012 give spectacular views of the Smoky Mountains and Fontana Lake. Be aware, Zipline Adventure Parks are a totally different experience with very limited zipping and a 2-hour self-guided tour on a high ropes course. If it is a zipline/canopy tour that you looking for, Nantahala Gorge Canopy Tours is where you want to go. A soaring zip experience through the trees, NGCT is More than a zip line ride.

The Kid Zips were great. Most places only let 10 year old and older kids Zipline. This place lets them start at 4 and it is very safe. I took my 11 year old and 7 year old and they had a blast for their first time ziplining. Thanks for a great experience.

Brought my eight and four year olds for their kid zipz course. They had a phenomenal time. Course guide was very patient and attentive especially with the younger one for whom this was a new experience. Highly recommended.

3 long time friends decided to meet in the mountains to zip. We had the best time! The guides Trevor and Kenneth were not only professional and knowledgeable but fun and witty. The scenery was amazingly beautiful. The leaves were many shades of fall. I definitely recommend NOC and ask for Trevor and Kenneth.

My friend and I went zip lining with NOC in October. Weather was beautiful and fall leaves looked great. Our guides were Coffee and Chewey and they did an awesome job of making us feel safe while having a great time. Coffee was very engaging and would ask each person a question about themselves as he was unclipping us from... More

A group of 8 of us went on the zip line tour, it was totally worth the money, we had so much fun and even the folks that were a bit scared had a good time. The guides were awesome, professional, knowledgable, and funny. We had a blast and a great way to turn 50

Second time ziplining for my husband and me and first time for our two sons (ages 10 and 13). We had a great time! Our guides clearly knew what they were doing and, in addition to providing helpful info about ziplining, they provided info about the trees, plants, history, and views. They really helped make our trip fun. We started... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my canopy experience. It was fun and relaxing. The tour guides, Trevor and Suzi were great. The group was friendly. It was worth the cost and met my expectations.

For your 1st time, this is excellent. About 3 hrs long. It wasn't until almost over that I started looking around. Guides were great. Very safety conscious
