Gain a fresh perspective on a beloved local treasure with this kayak tour at Lake James. During the winter, Lake James plays host to many species of migratory waterfowl and offers spectacular views of Linville Gorge and the Black Mountain Range. Ideal for novice and expert paddlers alike, you can hone your kayaking skills while enjoying the lake's most inspiring viewpoints. Learn all about the surrounding ecosystem, and maybe even catch a glimpse of a bald eagle, loon or heron. During the trip, we'll take a break to explore an island accessible only by boat and warm up with a steaming cup of hot chocolate or tea. The best thing about this tour? We do all the planning and packing--you just have to show up. This is such a stunning season to be out on the water--hope you'll join us!
