Western North Carolina is a dream vacation destination and we take advantage of everything WNC has to offer: whitewater rafting on three great rivers, white water kayak instruction, fly fishing, scenic lake tours and a store overlooking the Nantahala River. And when winter arrives, we take our expertise to Costa Rica and Ecuador for more great outdoor adventures.

Had a great rafting trip down the Ocoee with ERA. Went with Red, Danny, Michael, and Brandon. These guys were true professionals, but it was also like hanging out with friends. I really appreciated the way they treated my wife. She had never been rafting and was a little nervous. All the guys went out of their way to make... More

Love these folks! We have been ERA customers for over 15 years and enjoy every minute we spend with them in North Carolina, Ecuador, Costa Rica, and the Grand Canyon. ERA is truly the best of the best.

From the start with check in and checking out the store, Jade was very helpful and great helping pick out gear, I need a wrong sleeve top as mornings were chilly...As Jade found me the right size in tops, we had to stop several times to throw the...

We had a simply FANTASTIC time yesterday with ERA! From the time we walked in to check-in to the time we turned in our life vests, we were treated extremely well! My bro-in-law found this wonderful local business here on Trip Advisor, and we were certainly not steered wrong. We had an excellent guide in Sarge. He has over 35... More

Went with a group of friends while in the area on a camping trip. Juliet is great and our guide Sarge was the best. Made the trip even better. Will definitely return in the future.

We have used Endless River Adventures probably 18 times over the past 10 years and they are always excellent. Customer concern is number 1. I have messed up a few times and they have always been patient and gone overboard to make things right if there was any question. I cannot imagine using anyone else, but I do remember the... More

I went white water rafting the Nantahala with my 11 year old niece, 23 year old daughter, and my husband who isn't a comfortable swimmer. We all had reservations about going, but our guide Danny explained everything well so we were more comfortable. The river was relatively calm allowing us to really take in and enjoy the scenery; rapids were... More

I have never been to a place quite like this. The staff come out from behind the counter and great you with a handshake! You can tell they LOVE their jobs and really want to share it with you. The guides were professional, and take safety very seriously, but they are also a lot of fun. We laughed a lot!... More
