North Carolina
Duration: 10 Days

A 10-Day Journey Through Scenic North Carolina

Our excursion through the ancestral land of the Cherokee, the High Country in the westernmost part of North Carolina, included winery visits, pottery studio tours, memorable hotel stays and more. This area is beautiful to visit year-round; it is a place to slow down and relax amid the magnificent backdrop of the Blue Ridge Mountains. A leisurely drive through the High Country, with its scenic pastoral landscapes, hazy mountains, lush woodlands, seasonal floras, small charming towns and exceptional local artisans shops, is a sure way to soak in the grandeur of the highlands and feel connected to the land and the history of this part of the state.
