At Snakeroot Ecotours, we seek the genius of each species and trace the marvelous intricacy of their relationships. In our guided tours, we invite you into astoundingly diverse habitats and reveal the mysteries of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Snakeroot Ecotours is founded on the premise articulated by Rachel Carson: The more clearly we can focus our attention on the wonders and realities of the universe about us, the less taste we shall have for destruction.

We are based in Celo, NC in the shadow of the Black Mountains, the tallest range in the eastern U.S. Here in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains, our forests are among the most diverse temperate forests in the world. The hills are carpeted with over 1500 native flowering plant species. The pristine mountain creeks and leaflitter are home to more species of salamanders than any location on Earth. Join us for a gourmet guided tour of life in the Appalachian woods.
