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
