While ziplines and canopy tours have been modes of transportation and tourist attractions in other parts of the country, and around the world, the canopy tour has become the latest “Big” attraction. Over the last couple of years, several canopy tour companies have opened their doors for the high-flying excitement here in western NC. Adventure America Zipline Canopy Tours is the most recent to open in Asheville. Adventure America now has six different locations in the southeast, three of which are in NC and would be a perfect day trip from The Swag.
Just ask our Deener Matthews, our innkeeper. Recently when her family was visiting at The Swag, they all loaded up and headed to another fairly new tour operator, Navitat Canopy Adventures. Deener, and her family, spent over three hours hiking, zipping and rappelling at Navitat, located about 20 minutes north of Asheville.
So if you are looking for something a little more extreme that hiking to Hemphill Bald, think about one of the local canopy tours here in the beautiful mountains of western NC.
