We sea kayak to wonderful hiking areas, historic sites, or - on the 3-day trip - to an island in the middle of Fontana Lake where we spend 2 nights soaking up the beauty and serenity of this stunning area. We swim, relax, paddle and explore these amazing mountains. On the 3-day trip, we'll also enjoy sunset dinners on the shore and sleep in one of the most peaceful settings you can imagine; the second day we paddle across the lake and embark on a long day hike through lush forests, along mountain streams, and to awe-inspiring view points.
