The Nolichucky River provides rafters with an authentic river experience, far-removed in a gorgeous wilderness, floating on a free-flowing river. Because this watershed depends upon seasonal rains instead of dam releases, the Noli takes on different characteristics at different water levels. Your NOC guide knows how to maximize the fun at each level, while maintaining our industry-setting standards of safety! Nolichucky Lower Half-Day (ages 4+) For families with young children, a float trip on the lower section of the Nolichucky is a great way to spend an afternoon outdoors. NOC guides will lead you down three to six miles of mild, Class I-II water. If water levels permit, your guide may allow some members of your group to paddle duckies. Splashing and swimming are encouraged as you float this scenic river corridor! This trip is open to rafters as young as four, and is a great activity for youngsters under the minimum age required to raft the Class IV Nolichucky Gorge. Water and snacks will be provided at a scenic spot along the river. Nolichucky Gorge Express (ages 12+) Don’t have time to spend a full-day on the Nolichucky?

Water and snacks will be provided at a scenic spot along the river. Nolichucky Gorge Full-Day (ages 12+) Enjoy a full-day trip with the best guides on the river.

Included in the trip is a deli style lunch served in a scenic location alongside the river. Nolichucky Gorge High Adventure Ducks (ages 16+) Looking for a more adventurous day on the river?
