As the lengthiest rafting trip on the Pigeon River, this excursion is perfect for thrill-seekers who love being on the water. You'll navigate Class I to Class IV rapids with a private guide in every raft, who ensures you receive personalized attention. Plus, no prior rafting experience is required for this tour, meaning that everyone from beginners to experienced rafters can get involved.
What to Expect

Raft the churning waters of the Upper Pigeon River on this 6.5-mile (10-km) adventure. After making your own way to the start point, you'll receive a safety briefing and get kitted out with the necessary equipment. Working together as a team, you and your raft mates navigate through Class I to Class IV rapids, maneuvering through twists, turns, and natural obstacles.

Certified guides in every raft lead the team through about 70 rapids running right through the heart of the Smoky Mountains. The trip takes place rain or shine, so come prepared for big water, big fun, and big adventures. Even though the course can be challenging, it’s appropriate for beginners as well as intermediate rafters.
