About Highland Excursion
Highland Excursion specializes in custom, “Private” scenic tours within the Nantahala National Forest. Your tour starts in the quaint town of Highlands or Cashiers. These North Carolina hidden jewels are just a two hour drive north of Atlanta surrounded by the Nantahala Rainforest and situated atop a plateau. Experience mother natures’ four seasons, explore scenic drives in our open-air classic Pinzgauer adventure vehicles, stroll beneath waterfalls, drive through a rare North American temperate rainforest, see massive 400 year old trees in the shadow of the oldest mountains in the world. A Highland Excursion is one of the best things to do in Highlands, NC.
