Our Blue Ridge Mountains hiking tours and backpacking trips focus on the stunning Pisgah and Nantahala National Forests and wilderness areas outside Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Although not part of the Smokies, they share many of the same characteristics such as waterfalls, amazing views, wildlife, and lush forests. However, they tend to be much quieter allowing our guests to soak up wonderful mountains solitude. Our Blue Ridge Mountains offerings include backpacking/portered trips and inn-based tours. See trip style descriptions and tour offerings below.
