Stand up paddling is the perfect way to experience the beauty of Asheville! This family-friendly Asheville activity takes place on the French Broad River—an historic and scenic waterway that's the third oldest river in the world.
On all of our Asheville paddleboard tours and rentals, guests are offered complimentary transport as well as a paddling lesson. Over the course of 4 or 7 miles, paddlers will float through the Biltmore Estate or finish within walking distance of breweries and shops in the burgeoning River Arts District. Learn about Asheville's lengthy history and current tourism boom, and help support local Asheville businesses by exploring the River Arts. We're also big on sustainability and restoring the river's health, and through our corporate sponsorship of RiverLink, portions of proceeds from every single paddler are donated back to the river.
New to the sport of stand up paddling? That's ok—all of our guides are ACA trained as certified SUP instructors, and the boards we use are wide and stable—we even use flexible, 4 inch fins specifically designed for rivers!
