“Jobs fill your pockets, adventures fill your soul.”
– Jaime Lyn Beatty

Set in the Blue Ridge Mountains, Asheville, NC has a little something for everyone. With its gorgeous natural areas to explore, a seemingly never-ending supply of craft beer, a blossoming farm-to-table restaurant movement, and a booming art district, it’s not hard to see why Lonely Planet named it the #1 Best in the US Destinations in 2017. To top it off, Asheville is well-known for its eclectic and bohemian vibe where there is live music basically on every corner and funky and fun shops selling local wares.
So what is a Multisport and Multicraft tour? It’s a vacation focused on checking out not only a variety of different fun, physical activities but you also get to sample the local craft beer, food, music, and culture of a given area. On this tour, we will be horseback riding through the foothills, kayaking or Stand Up Paddleboarding the French Broad River, hiking through forests to captivating overlooks, and biking to waterfalls. In between, and sometimes during, these activities, we’ll be checking out Asheville’s food, beer, and music scenes.

Daily Itinerary

DAY 1: We will meet you in Asheville right after lunch in the lobby of our hotel. We start with some quick introductions before heading directly to our first activity – horseback riding in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. Keep your eyes peeled for local wildlife including deer, wild turkey, turtles, shrews, and potentially even a black bear! On our way back into town, we’ll stop for our first craft food experience with a tour and tasting at an artisan chocolate confectioner. After a sweet treat, we’ll head back to the hotel to wash up and change before walking to dinner for a farm-to-table Sunday Supper….SEE FULL ITINERARY
