Asheville Adventure Rentals is located at mile marker 72 of the French Broad River. We offer self-guided canoe, solo kayak, tandem kayak, tube, and stand-up paddleboard trips on the ancient French Broad River. Our urban float trips are great for families, groups, or individuals. They vary in length, flowing through several of Asheville’s major attractions, like the Biltmore Estate and the River Arts District. Trips are perfect for novice to experienced paddlers and take place on Class I rapids.
