Rafting in the Smokies has been providing great outdoor fun since 1978 and they invite you to "Come out and Play! So let's begin with a whitewater trip with certified and trained guides who know the river and know how to provide a great water adventure for you and your family. You can choose from an Upper Pigeon River trip that features 12 Class III and 3 Class IV whitewater rapids, or a Family Fun trip on the Lower Pigeon River.
The lower Pigeon River trip has much calmer Class I and II rapids and is perfect for a family or group who just want to float the river. Both trips are about and hour-and-a-half and provide beautiful mountain scenery and plenty of memories.

The High Element Ropes Challenge Course offers four levels of difficulty, allowing you to get acclimated with the easier course, then to rise up to greater skills at Levels II, III and IV. The course is high in the trees but safety equipment and instruction is provided to all who accept the Ropes Course Challenge.
