Western North Carolina is a dream vacation destination and we take...

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.

These folks are always my first pick for kayak instruction. They're very skilled and professional. Their raft trips are fun and the guides are also very skilled. I took a trip on the Cheoah a couple years back and it was an awesome experience. They have a good selection of gear in their shop and are always competitive. These are... More

So this is weird because I actually work for the competition, but today I had the absolute pleasure of accompanying these guys down the Cheoah river (one of the most challenging whitewater runs in the eastern US). I have nothing but good things to say about the skill level and professionalism of these guides. If I was sending my family... More

Our trip was on the Nantahala River. It was a bit cold, a little rainy, but you're floating down this beautiful river... all that other stuff just didn't matter. Our guide, Josh, was the best part of the trip. He was knowledgeable, funny, made us all feel like we actually knew what we were doing!! We can't wait for our... More

I can't rave enough about this place! I am so glad I decided to book with them! They didn't make me feel lame for wanting a relaxing adventure with a kayak lake tour instead of white water rafting. My dealings with Julia and Fawn and Nick were so pleasant and friendly. Sarge was the best guide we could have asked... More

My wife and I took our two boys, 10 and 11, for a day of rafting. We had a blast! And our guide, Sarge was great with the boys. We look forward to returning for another trip.

I was nervous about rafting the Ocoee River, but our guide (Red) was excellent and we had so much fun! I felt safe & confident and appreciate how ERA treats/caters to their guests. I would definitely recommend this company.

Great trip down the river with Sarge. We had a blast. The entire staff was friendly and very accommodating. These guys (and ladies) are first class and go the extra mile for their guests.

This was my third time paddling the beautiful Nantahala River. I used another company my first two times and ERA this past time and will definitely use them exclusively every other trip I take. Super super friendly and professional staff. Anyone walking through the door is looking for a good time. Other large corporate companies on this river, seemed irritated... More

My son and I came for a half day fly fishing tour. All the staff is very friendly and Ken was a great guide. We spent about 4 hours on the tour and learned a lot from him. Even though fly fishing has a lot of tricks, Ken was knowledgeable and patient enough to teach us the basics to catch... More
