The zip line canopy tour industry is growing rapidly in North Carolina. While that’s very exciting for our beautiful state, it means a bit of research is required of potential customers when deciding which tour would be the best Asheville zip line to meet their needs. We at Navitat definitely encourage you to do some research prior to making a reservation with any zip line tour provider.
Now, we’re going to have to toot our own horn just a bit because, well, we don’t want anyone missing out on the Navitat experience. We do tree-based adventures–and only tree-based adventures. It’s our focus, our passion, and our expertise. While other “adventure providers” are getting in on the zip line trend because it’s the “hot” thing to do right now, we were born to do tree-based adventure. Why? Because we believe that experiencing trees from a new perspective can be thrilling, educational and, ultimately, inspiring.
Here, to assist you in choosing an Asheville zip line tour for your next adventure, are a list of reasons that zip lining at Navitat exceeds guests expectiations time and time again.
1. We have THE BEST GUIDES! No really, they are so GREAT! Aside from being just generally awesome, interesting, and exciting people, they also have some serious skills. That’s right! Our guides have to complete a rigorous 70 hour technical and educational training program before becoming guides. Their safety training comes directly from our COO who serves on the Operations Certifications Standard Committee of the Association for Challenge Course Technology. Their ecological training comes from a Master’s Level Ecologist that works for Navitat fulltime developing our educational and environmental programming. We hear our guides being praised so often that most of their ears must be constantly on fire. Yes, they really are that good. Don’t believe it? Check out the reviews on Trip Advisor and Yelp.
2. When you’re on a Navitat Asheville zip line tour you are immersed in nature, taking in nothing but gorgeous views and fresh air. Sure, we’re 20 minutes North of Asheville, but trust us, that short drive is so worth it when you’re staring at a 6000 foot peak with not a building in sight. You will see no houses or man made structures once you’re on our course… just trees and views for days. In fact, we’re so off the grid that most people can’t even get cell phone service. But don’t worry, if you can’t go a second without updating your status, we do have a welcome center where you can stay plugged in. All in all, this place we call Moody Cove is magical.
3. Stats? Oh, our stats are good. Really good! You want height and speed? We’ve got a lot of both and some length too! Did we mention we also have rappels and sky bridges? We have 10 zip lines, 2 sky bridges, and 2 rappels. Our zip lines are as long as 1100 feet and as high as 200 feet off the ground. And let’s not forget that they’re entirely tree-based. You won’t be zipping from platforms in poles that were placed there in the last couple of years. You’ll be zipping from platforms in large hundred plus year old trees that have withstood the test of time (and weather)!
4. In the end, Navitat exists because of people like you–people interested in experiencing the world (and particularly trees!) from a brand new perspective. And because we love our guests, we take care of ‘em… and we do it better than anyone else in the area.
We have smaller group sizes than the other Asheville zip line tours. Our tours have a maximum of 8 people (rather than 10-12 like the others). This allows for increased safety, less crowded platforms, and an overall more personalized guest experience.
Our cancellation policy is the most generous we’ve heard of in our industry. We understand that things come up. We want you to be happy and ready for your Navitat tour, so as long as you cancel more than 72 hours in advance of your tour time, you will receive a full refund. We do operate rain or shine here, (zipping in the rain is fun!) but if severe weather comes up, we’re sometimes forced to cancel your tour. We wish we could wave our magic wands Harry Potter style and make every day brilliant for you, but since we can’t, we’ll offer you a rain check or full refund should we have to cancel due to severe weather.
Add all of these reasons to a longer tour with higher, faster zip lines and more course elements and you can see why Navitat is worth every penny!
