Your next adventure starts here! Get Outside! Explore your world!!
NC Outdoor Adventures, LLC was founded by Scott and Christy Thrift in 2011 with the goal of getting more people outside, regardless of their skill, experience level, or adventure preference. Our adventure guiding company was created out of the obvious need for outdoor recreation experiences and education. Based out of the Blue Ridge mountains in Western North Carolina, NCOA offers over 21 different trips including; tubing, rafting, whitewater kayak instruction, climbing, rappelling, waterfall rappelling, hiking, camping, youth programs, wild edible plant walkabouts plus alpine climbing instruction during the winter months. This diversity in trip offerings makes our family owned company the perfect choice for many families, couples, adventurers, and scouting groups. Outside of these daily trips, NC Outdoor Adventures also has a strong climbing education program taught by certified climbing instructors including courses on transitioning from the gym to the crag, sport leading, traditional leading, multi-pitch instruction, self- rescue and top rope ice climbing during the winter months. "Get outside, with us" - Scott and Christy Thrift
