Ziplines, Whitewater Rafting, Fly Fishing & More at Congress Day Off

Monday July 16, 2012

In case playing go isn’t thrilling enough, Go Congress organizers are offering a Zipline Adventure among the Day Off options. The course’s mile of suspended cable features ten zip lines, including one soaring 200 feet above the forest floor and one that is 1100 feet long, artfully-crafted platforms that nest seamlessly in large native trees, two rappelling experiences, two suspended sky bridges that span forest sections teeming with flora and fauna, and three short hikes. Participants “will enjoy a thrilling ride while learning about local culture, history, the natural environment, and perhaps more about themselves.” Other Day Off options include a tour of the Biltmore Estate, Whitewater Rafting, a Guided Waterfall Hike, Fly Fishing, Asheville On Your Own and Crafts At Your Own Pace. “Be sure to sign up early to ensure your place,” encourages organizer Cynthia Gaty.
