Our 4-Day Appalachian “Brews & Views” Adventure combines the best hiking and craft brewery hotspots of North Carolina into one relatively short, purely Appalachian outdoor vacation. You’ll challenge yourself and experience some of the best hikes, diverse forests, waterfalls, towns, and breweries the Appalachian region has to offer. We’ve meticulously hand-picked the lodging, hikes, and breweries to make your week as unique and memorable as possible! This tour includes 3 nights of premier lodging, all local transportation (including designated driver shuttles after visiting breweries), sensational hikes, trail snacks, all meals, and 1 pint or flight of beer at each brewery.
Each day we set out on challenging and fulfilling hikes through the historic and towering Blue Ridge Mountains. Each evening we’ll take you to a hand-picked brewery where you can enjoy a selection of craft beers and exceptional Appalachian cuisine.
Please Note: this trip can be a fun choice for 2021. The breweries we visit have outdoor patios where we can enjoy beer tasting and physical distancing at the same time. Tours of the breweries are not operating, but the hiking and beer tasting are as great as they’ve always been!
