"Keep close to Nature’s heart... and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean."  John Muir

Thrifty Adventures is an Adventure Travel Company based out of the Blue Ridge mountains in Western North Carolina. Established in Concord NC in 2011 we provided basic Rock Climbing Trips to folks in the Charlotte NC area. In 2015 we relocated to WNC where we became the most diverse Wilderness Guide Company in NC. We offer an array of services including: Rock Climbing (beginner to advanced), Rappelling/Abseiling, Waterfall Rappelling, Whitewater, River Tubing, Yoga Hikes and various youth programs. Two new programs include Wilderness Photography and Botany Classes; foraging for wild edibles.
