Breathtaking Smoky Mountain Zip Line Adventures
NOC offers five aerial and zip line adventures with something for every one and every budget.
While most zip line tours glide from tree to tree in forest canopies, the Mountaintop flies from ridgeline to ridgeline, culminating in the longest zipline in the region, a dramatic half-mile mega zip.
After a day of activities, shopping or doing absolutely nothing, put a steak on the BBQ or spend time in the rocking chairs enjoying the cool mountain air & watch the abundance of wildlife. Relax in the hot tub and think about the events of the day and plan what you would like to do tomorrow…

The area offers a wide range of activities from horseback riding or a canopy tour via zip line through the Nantahala Forest NC. Rent a canoe and explore and swim in the Nantahala Lake or go whitewater rafting on the Nantahala River NC. We are close to some great attractions;
Our signature course is NOC's Mountaintop Zip Line Tour. There are many zip line canopy tours, but there are none like the Mountaintop. The Mountaintop is perched on the rim of the Nantahala Gorge, over 500 feet above the Nantahala River below, featuring 360-degree views of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the Nantahala Gorge.
The Museum of the Cherokee Indian is “A Model for Museums.” And like the Cherokee people themselves, it’s entirely unique.
Experience the 11,000-year-old Cherokee story vividly. If your idea of a museum includes dusty displays tended by a boring curator, get ready to rediscover what a museum can be.
Inspired by the beauty and ingenuity of the Cherokee people, this is a cultural and historical tour without equal, one fused with interactive video, intriguing displays, and a full sensory experience.
Step through our doors and discover up close the Cherokee people’s spirit of inventiveness, resilience, and will to survive. Let yourself be guided through a moving journey that illustrates who the people of Cherokee really are, where they came from, and why they’re still here. Keep a hankie close; Cherokee history is serious stuff.
