Rapid Transit Full Day Raft & Rail with Lunch
Class I & II
(minimum age 7 or 60 lbs)
Rapid Transit combines the best of both worlds - a scenic morning train ride and an afternoon whitewater raft trip, all in the Nantahala Gorge. This option is available exclusively on the Nantahala River and the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad.
You board the train in Bryson City and ride 2 hour railroad excursion over Fontana Lake and into the Nantahala Gorge. The train drops you off right at the Nantahala Outdoor Center in time for lunch. After a paddling orientation your group will raft the Nantahala River on a fully guided raft trip.
North Carolina's shimmering Nantahala River offers river rafting through family friendly rapids that are mild but exciting. Nantahala rafting features eight miles of easy Class II rapids before splashing through the exciting Class III whitewater of Nantahala Falls. This is one of America’s most popular whitewater runs! After your exciting run through Nantahala Falls, you'll float right back to NOC where an instant photo show, changing rooms, hot showers and transportation back to Bryson City await you.
