Endless River Adventures has been shaking up the industry with our vision, innovation, commitment to community involvement and focus on family fun since 1993. We offer quality white water adventure vacations in western North Carolina, Ecuador and Costa Rica.

Our North Carolina headquarters is strategically based alongside the Nantahala River, outside Bryson City, NC – the epicenter for multi-sport outdoor vacations near the Smoky Mountain National Park. We are your complete outdoor destination for whitewater rafting, white water kayak instruction, guided fly fishing, and an Outfitters Store specializing in whitewater kayaking and fly fishing equipment.

Internationally, we offer adventure vacations in Costa Rica and Ecuador that include white water kayaking trips, whitewater rafting, bird watching and amazonia fly fishing.

No matter how you choose to enjoy the outdoors, we want to share our passion with you. Join us today for your best adventure yet.

We truly believe that the rivers of Ecuador are what bring people here with us, but it’s the experiences that make it such a special trip. And bring you back again. Thank you @elysiaclemens for reconfirming that for us. #kayakecuador #whitewaterismagic #explore #travel #allyouneedisecuador #familytravel ...

There is more then one way to enjoy the rivers of Ecuador - and that includes in a raft or a shredder. We have something for all whitewater enthusiasts!! #quijos #getontheriver #whitewaterismagic #shredder ...

Weekend schedule for the Nantahala: Saturday 12:00-8pm and Sunday 3PM-8PM. Our shop is open both days from 10-3!! #shopsmallbusiness #nantahala ...

So the question is …. South of the equator does your roll work better on one side or the other? Regardless, it is a lot more fun working on your roll south of the equator in December!!

To be able to pull up to the @rioquijosecolodge, outfit boats and be on the Quijos warming up in a matter of only a couple of hours from Quito is pretty convenient. #makeiteasy #quijos #kayakecuador ...

Nothing would make us happier than you spending #blackfriday outside. In celebration of getting outdoors, we are extending our holiday sale through December 3rd. Stop in if you come to paddle/hike/bike in western North Carolina. Or call us to have something packaged up and shipped to you. Thank you for your support!!! #buysmallbusiness #supportsmallbusiness #getoutside #newtoys ...

Available Adventures

Whitewater Rafting

We raft three of the best rivers in the southeast: the Nantahala, Ocoee and Cheoah Rivers. Based just outside of Bryson City, near the Smoky Mountain National Park.  we offer family rafting for kids seven years old and up, as well as advanced rivers up to Class IV+ for the more adventurous.

Kayak Instruction

Our renowned paddling program offers custom kayak instruction from beginner fundamentals to advanced technique.  Our focus is on you learning to roll your kayak, improving stroke work, and advanced moves for stepping up your game.  We are permitted for instruction on the Nantahala, Ocoee and Cheoah Rivers, and use all the creeks and rivers in western North Carolina as our classroom. 

Fly Fishing

For guided float trips, wade trips or introductory fly fishing instruction, our location offers some of the most diverse fishing opportunities .  We guide a variety of rivers and streams with brook, brown and rainbow trout and warm water streams with small-mouth bass. Endless River Adventures is permitted through the U.S. Forest Service for guided float trips on the tailwater section of the Nantahala River.
