Nick's Notes 5.18.18--Thrill-Educate-Inspire.


This is our 3rd year of partnering with Navitat Zipline Canopy Adventures. We are happy to be able to offer guests of Abbington Green a 10% discount to experience ziplining in the Western North Carolina Mountains.  Navitat is located only 22 minutes north of Asheville.

Last Monday, Steve and I had an amazing afternoon at Navitat.  We chose the Moody Cove Adventure for our zipline, which has 10 ziplines, 2 sky bridges, 1 rappel out of a tree and a few short hikes in between.  The whole adventure is about 3.5 hours.

I want to commend Navitat on their excellent trained guides and overall attention to professionalism and safety.  We had a fantastic time with our great guides Amy and Alex.  Navitat's tag line is: " Thrill. Educate. Inspire.", and that's what we experienced.

Thrill:  the tallest zipline is 200 feet high and the longest is 1100 feet--you go fast!

Educate:  during our hikes, Amy and Alex taught us about some of the plants, and even some of the medicinal properties associated with them.

Inspire: the views are pretty inspirational and reminds me why we love living in Western North Carolina so much.

Here  are a few more pictures of Steve and I at Navitat:

They also offer the Blue Ridge Experience, which opened in 2014.  Three huge side-by-side racing ziplines from 1100 to 3600 feet long.  It also includes a few short hikes and lasts about 2.5 hours.  We look forward to going back and we'll definitely be trying that one next time.

It was  a fun afternoon ziplining and I know you will enjoy it just as much as we did.  It is a great adventure to check it out the next time you're in Asheville. 

You can see our package deal with them on our "Package Deals" page:   and for more information, check out Navitat's website.  We look forward to continued partnership with Navitat, and to hearing about all of our guests' ziplining adventures!

All the best, --Nick
