Zip up to Navitat Canopy Tours Easily from our Asheville, NC Bed and Breakfast

June 14th, 2011 by stacy

Get ready to see the world in a new and different way. Hidden in a secluded mountain cove only 20 minutes north of Asheville and a short drive from our Asheville Bed and Breakfast, the Navitat Canopy Adventures zip line canopy tour.  Navitat Canopy Adventures takes guests on a thrilling and educational adventure high in the trees of the Blue Ridge Mountains.  Fast, smooth zip lines stretch high above the forest floor; skillfully crafted platforms nest seamlessly (and securely) in large beautiful native trees; and sky-bridges span forest sections teeming with natural wonder and leading to magical surprises like a grand old blooming Tulip Poplar tree.

Navitat Asheville was recently named “one of the best in the nation” in USA TODAY’s “10 Great Ziplines Across the USA!”  I recently went on an afternoon canopy tour and have to say it was a blast.  There were 8 participants in our group and 2 guides. I thought that I would be scared and nervous….but not all.   The views were spectacular and I got to exercise my inner Tarzan (or Jane in my case).  I entered feeling a bit apprehensive about sailing through the forest, but left with my face hurting from grinning so much.

To schedule your canopy tour, contact Pinecrest Inn at 888-811-3053. For more information visit www.pinecrestbb.com or click here for inn discounts and special offers.
