The Asheville Outdoor Center has been offering family-friendly calm-water river paddling since 1992. Enjoy a leisurely 7-mile canoe, kayak, SUP, or raft paddle down the French Broad River through the Biltmore Estate property. We also offer gem mining, bike rentals, games, and outdoor events. Please check out our website for more information and call us to make a reservation. Normal business hours are Tuesday-Sunday 9AM-5PM. We are the "Pioneers of the French Broad." During September we will be open Thursday-Sunday. In October, we will be open Friday-Sunday.
