Description

Please Note: This tour is a brand new offering and is still having the final touches put on it. It will be available for booking soon!

Our 2-day Brews and Views Day Hike Combo combines unforgettable hikes with craft beers at iconic Appalachian breweries after each trek! You will challenge yourself on two phenomenal hikes in the Asheville area. The first one takes us into the third largest wilderness area in North Carolina. It is one of only two wilderness gorges in the Southern US and affectionately known as “The Grand Canyon of the East.” The second hike takes us into another iconic wilderness area past waterfalls and biodiverse forests to unique geological features and breathtaking vistas.

On our way back to town each day we will stop at carefully selected breweries that embody the character of Appalachia for a refreshing pint or two (or three). This tour includes transportation (including a designated driver back to Asheville), drives along the Blue Ridge Parkway, trail snacks and lunch and complimentary pint or flight of beer.
