North Carolina Hiking: Wildlandtrekking Hiking Adventures

Our North Carolina hiking and backpacking tours focus on Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the amazing Blue Ridge Mountains around the Asheville, North Carolina. We offer backpacking trips, portered hikes, inn-based hiking tours, paddle and hike trips, and day hikes in these areas

Our tours are all-inclusive and expert led, allowing guests to focus 100% on enjoying their journey through Appalachia!

The mountains of North Carolina and Tennessee offer a wealth of opportunities for a rich and rewarding hiking vacation. Great Smoky Mountains National Park is a lush, stunning national park with a phenomenal network of hiking trails that take adventurous visitors to waterfalls, breathtaking viewpoints, high mountain ridges, deep valleys, incredibly biodiverse ecosystems, and historical sites. The Blue Ridge Mountains outside Asheville offer many of the same highlights but with fewer people and amazing geologic phenomena. The opportunity to explore these eastern mountains is one our guests remember forever.

In North Carolina and Tennessee we offer Appalachian backpacking trips, portered treks, inn-based hiking tours, paddle and hike trips, and day hike tours. Backpacking trips are best for guests looking to challenge themselves and experience the wilder side of Appalachia. Portered treks are for folks who want to hike and camp in the backcountry but hike with light backpacks.
