Boone Things to Do: 34 reviews and 70 photos

This would be my number one recommendation for adventure in the mountains! Whitewater rafting is such a blast! No experience is needed. Lessons and life jackets included. A professional guide is in every raft. Choice of trips range from mild to extreme! Lunch is included.

Wahoo Adventures offers several trips:

The Watuaga River trip is ideal for families (minimun age 3) and beginners. Gentle Class II and III rapids.

The Nolichucky River trip (through Pisgah and Cherokee National Forest) is a very exciting 11 mile trip of Class III and IV rapids. The Nolichucky is ranked as one of the top whitewater runs in the nation. Minimum age for this trip is 7.

Extreme Class V rafting on Wilson Creek Gorge - 10 foot falls, 18 foot stair step drops, etc. - not for the faint of heart! Minimum age is 12.

And for the most adventurous, Wahoo offers an X-Stream Team Rafting trip, Russell Fork Gorge Extremely Extreme trip, and Watauga River Gorge The Ultimate trip. See their website for details of these.
