Join the stand-up paddleboarding (SUP) trend when you're in Asheville. As you paddle along the mellow, Class I waters of the French Broad River, you'll take in the historical and scenic atmosphere of the heart of Asheville's burgeoning downtown. Board, paddle, booties, and a dry bag are provided. When booking, select a sunrise, mid-morning, mid-afternoon, or sunset tour.
Enjoy a 4-mile, guided paddleboard trip down the French Broad River in Asheville. Get local history from a professional guide who will also teach you the strokes and technique for navigating your way down the river. All tours are private--so no paddling as part of a group--and the wide, stable, comfortable boards create an easy, user-friendly experience that first time paddlers can enjoy.
Over the course of the 4-mile tour you'll pass through parkland, forests, and streams while keeping an eye out for local wildlife such as herons, turtles, and deer. See where the Swannanoa River meets up with the mighty, meandering French Broad, which is one of the oldest rivers in the world, as it weaves through the Appalachian Mountains.
Your tour finishes in the River Arts District within walking distance of breweries, restaurants, artisan studios and shops.
