NC TOURING - Affordable Outdoor Adventures
  Specializing in Backpacking, Kayaking and Motorcycle Expeditions

11th Anniversary

Line and Terri of NC Touring After 10 years of great success, COVID got in our way. Don't fret, we will still be offering our touring service, but we are limiting the number of participants to keep you and our guides safe. This is the perfect time to get a private tour for the cost of a group event!

Because of the smaller number of participants, we are having to run more trips, which creates more chances for you to get away from home.

2020 being a weird year for everyone, we really have not had to change our approach to outdoor adventures. We have always made it a point to spend as much time outdoors as possible, so your chance of exposure to COVID or other respiratory diseases is reduced as compared to indoor activities. Motorcycling, kayaking and hiking are social distance activities on their own, so keeping 6 feet apart is easy!

As always, we have expanded our guide service to include fully inclusive tours all the way to bare-bones depending on your level of experience or sense of adventure.

We initially developed our company to eliminate many of the obstacles that keep people from experiencing outside adventures. That has not changed! Most people do not have the initial equipment, or want to invest in something that they are not sure if they will like... we are here to fill that gap and create an experience that is truly unique, with a level of expertise that will have you coming back for more.

As professionals in the tourism industry, we want you to have a safe, and enjoyable experience. That can be completed on one of our designed tours or we can custom build an adventure for you! We look forward to getting outside with you soon!

What people are saying about NC Touring...

We wanted to thank you for showing us the beauty of North Carolina that we were not familiar with. We saw five beautiful waterfalls that we never knew were there. Each was beautiful in its own way. The ride on the parkway was amazing with vistas overlooking valleys and scenic views of mountains. We can't thank you enough for this experience. We appreciate your attention to safety during the rain on the way home. We look forward to the fall colors trip Suzanne and Byron

We had an absolutely wonderful time with Line and Terri. They did a tremendous amount of work preparing for the weekend waterfall tour and were extremely knowledgeable with regards to the local history and beautiful spots off the beaten path. Line and Terri were incredibly flexible with our interests, easy to quickly establish a warm rapport with, and emphasized safety and professionalism in all aspects of the trip. It was a fantastic weekend and the highlight of my vacation in North Carolina. I highly recommend NC Touring. Matt R.

Line and Terri are pros at creating relaxing get-aways. From the tranquility and beauty of nature to the camaraderie around a blazing campfire, NC Touring can make the stresses of your everyday life just melt away. Their expert planning has you enjoying a great ride and viewing some of North Carolina's most scenic vistas. Mike and Cheryl
