Smidge of the Blue Ridge

Smidge of the Blue Ridge Caravan


This is a short, active, and exciting caravan!  At 13 nights, this is a perfect caravan for first-timers to try out caravanning, or if you’re still working!  You will zipline, raft, hike, and bike while traveling along the beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway!  

We begin in Whittier, NC (near Bryson City) where you will camp on the banks of the Tuckasegee River. While there you’ll raft the Nantahala Gorge.  You’ll have a free day to explore the area – hike and see waterfalls, learn about the Cherokee culture, or ride the Great Smokey Mountains Railroad.  After three nights in Bryson City, we’ll move to Asheville, NC.

In Asheville, you’ll fly on a zipline through the mountains, hike and see the waterfalls in DuPont Forest, and visit the historic Biltmore Estate.

Our last stop is in Boone, NC.  You’ll bike DOWN the historic Virginia Creeper Trail in Damascus, VA.  You’ll also have a free day with many options to pick from - horseback riding on a mountain trail, hiking, or visit the historic Moses Cone Manor. Finally, we’ll end our great experience with a dinner at the renowned Dan’l Boone Inn.
