Autumn in North Carolina

Capturing the foliage in North Carolina

Visitors in North Carolina can experience the fun activities and key attractions as well as the colour in autumn, below are ideas on how to capture the beauty as well as the fun.   

Visitors will not have trouble finding a zip line tour as the state is known for the large number available, and autumn is the perfect time to experience the colour up close with a canopy zip line adventure. Check out The Gorge, the steepest in the Continental United States.

Hopping on the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad’s autumn foliage ride follows an historic rail line into river gorges, across valleys and through tunnels carved out of majestic mountains. In Blowing Rock, Tweetsie Railroad also combines scenery with family fun.

Kayaking or stand-up paddleboard trekking through lush salt marshes is the perfect way to paddle through the autumn scenery, there’s Kitty Hawk Kayaks in Corolla and the Adventure Kayak Company in Southport.

Riding through the beautiful colours via horseback is also another favourite. The Great Smoky Mountains National Park provides horse riding through woodlands, streams and waterfalls with beautiful back drops when you look around.  Alternatively you can see the fall back drops from the waterfalls while water rafting in the Nantahala River, Smoky Mountains.

Let’s not forget what many visitors do while in North Carolina. Enjoy the variety of hikes where you are surrounded by natural beauty and amazing views as you reach the top. For more information on the perfect hikes to capture the best autumn sight please visit
