Nantahala Outdoor Center (NOC) has launched international adventure travel tours beginning spring 2022 in celebration of its 50th anniversary season. Outdoor enthusiasts can plan trips abroad, including activities that NOC is known for and more, in countries worldwide.
NOC will kick off its international travel program with 12 trips that offer varying itineraries available for ages six and up with activities ranging in skill level from beginner to expert. The excursions are fully planned and led by experienced guides and include everything from the adventure and gear to the lodging and meals, except for flights.
Due to partnerships with local guides and hosts in each region, these trips offer intimate and authentic experiences with smaller groups, off-the-beaten-path excursions and unique accommodations. This makes for an accessible approach to adventure travel, where guests can navigate and experience some of the most beautiful places on Earth without feeling like a tourist.
With NOC’s 50 years of adventure experience, trips have options including multi-sport itineraries and a range of specific adventure activities, like whitewater rafting, kayaking, hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, paragliding and horseback riding. Non-adventure activities include unique cultural experiences, bear viewings, safaris, wine tastings and farm to table meals.
