White Water Rafting - most fun & affordable way to explore the Smoky Mountains

January 18, 2023

There’s a reason the Great Smoky Mountain National Park is the most visited National Park in the country: it’s home to over 2,100 miles of rushing mountain streams, scenic views with elevations up to 6,643 feet, and a wondrous diversity of wildlife.

We’re proud to be located in nearby Hartford, TN — just on the edge of the Smoky Mountains and a short drive from the heart of Gatlinburg. The Smokies are our home, and we never take that for granted.

If you’re not from the area, you might be looking for affordable ways to explore East Tennessee with friends and family. Few experiences offer the excitement and fun of a white water rafting trip — and it’s more affordable than you probably think.

With trips starting at just $39 per person (the same price as a few games of bowling), you can traverse Class III-IV rapids while enjoying the natural beauty of the Smokies.

Our guided white water rafting trips take place on the Big Pigeon River, which flows from western North Carolina into the French Broad River, just past Newport, Tennessee. It’s the perfect location to take in the scenery and witness some of the area’s wildlife, including:

65 species of mammals (white-tailed deer, groundhogs, etc.), 80 types of reptiles and amphibians, and 67 native fish species.

Book your white water rafting trip TODAY, or call 866-333-RAFT to speak with one of our representatives. We’ll help plan a reservation that fits your specific needs and schedule. Remember: no trip to the Smokies is complete without a white water rafting adventure.
