When gravity, gradient, and rainfall all combine, they create a magnificent and powerful sight. The waterfalls of the Blue Ridge Mountains are especially stunning and numerous. In fact, there are so many of these beautiful natural features found in this area, that a subculture of hiking called waterfall hunting has recently been termed due to people’s zeal in finding these gems. However, as with everything else in life, our biggest constraint in getting to these special places, is time.
That’s why we have created a full day version of our popular Waterfalls and Wine tour. This tour is designed for those ambitious souls that just can’t get enough natural beauty. Maybe you’ve already been on one of our half day trips. With the full day tour, we will make sure to take you someplace new. Let our guides showcase even more of their knowledge of the area with the extra time. Some of the waterfalls will be accessible from the road and others will require some moderate hiking. Our guides are certified in wilderness first aid and competent in wilderness travel so that we can appropriately manage the risks that come with the environment. Not only can we show you waterfalls and local flora and fauna, but we can also provide helpful tips and tricks to enhance your forest-inspired experience.
Of course we can’t forget about the wine! As with the half day tour, we will end our trip at Broad Street Wines in downtown Brevard. Connie is very knowledgeable of her wares and can help you discover a wine that’s right for you. So, leave the driving to us and find yourself inspired by the all that the area has to offer. No previous hiking experience is required. Cost of wine tasting is included. Check for availability and sign up today!
