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.

Excellent zip line in the forest

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

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.

My 16 year old son and I had a great time! Our first zip line tour. Several of the platforms offer good views- one is a really spectacular view of the lake and the mountains! Our guides, Barrett and Lindsey, were super nice and kept it fun. Thanks for a fun afternoon!

Views were beautiful. Suspension bridges were very unsafe--one was missing planks. One of the guides was wonderful; the other was condescending, rude, and insulting. After about the fourth zip I just wanted the tour to be done. Wouldn't go back.

We had an amazing time. My husband, teenage children, myself and my mother all participated and all had a great time. My 15 year old son and 17 year old daughter said it was a highlight of their vacation. All of us "young in heart" adults had to agree!!!

Lots of fun for the whole family. The kids (10& 14) loved it and wished that it would've lasted all day. Our guides were awesome- friendly and professional. We'd all love to do this again.
