Wet & Wild Family Adventure - North Carolina
Jumping through waterfalls, swimming in natural waterholes, and water-skiing in a mountain lake highlight this wet & wild family adventure in western North Carolina. Everyone will be refreshed and exhausted on this family Summer getaway!
Begin your week at the Biltmore Estate, hailed as 'America's largest home' (and also named a 'national wonder and one of America's top destinations' by National Georgraphic Traveler). As we loosely follow the Blue Ridge Parkway west from Asheville to Highlands, NC, there are plenty of waterfalls to explore and swimming stops to be made. Some of our hikes even offer bountiful blueberry-picking! At the end of the day, enjoy our superb accommodations and the amenities they offer - everything from swimming pools to tubing and waterskiing.
Your typical day is based around fun activities designed for the whole family. After fueling up on a warm breakfast, the crew will take off on the activity of the day, sometimes focused purely on fun, other times adding some education and history. We choreograph a perfectly balanced day of time together with time apart. The routes and trails are perfect family distances, with a little extra mileage for those who want to venture further! While our guides are off scavenging around on an adventure with the kids, mom can relax poolside with her book.
Age range, type of group
Our family adventures are designed for families with children ages 7 and older. Family itineraries are special because they transcend different ages, different energy levels, and different motives. They also create different needs, like extra safety precautions, specially trained guides with increased supervision and support, and maybe a smidgen of education sprinkled in with all the fun.
Sleeping and meals
Accommodations reflect the needs of a family. Although we always stay at the region's best accommodations, for family trips we find lodging that includes more family-friendly amenities, like swimming pools, tennis courst, water activities and the like. Knowing that children fly around a million miles an hour, our accommodations have been specifically picked for comfort, fun and proximity to the best trails in the area.
Pets, cell phones, work-related headaches, and grumpy folks are not allowed on this trip.
It's all about time. Wondering where it goes, wishing there were more of it, and sometimes trying to re-capture times gone by. Remember what it felt like to go on a family vacation when you were a child? No worries, just fun with your family, with someone else doing all of the planning and the work. Liberating, huh? Now imagine re-capturing that time, that feeling, by letting someone else take care of all your vacation hassles and planning. We invite you to spend your next vacation on a different sort of time frame - one which we take care of the planning, leaving you the freedom to enjoy time with your family. Nothing is more important to you than your family, and when your family is with us, nothing is more important to us than making sure your family has a great vacation!
All children ages 7-15 receive a 10% discount from the tour cost. A third child staying in the same room with their siblings will recieve a 20% discount.
