March 11, 2019 May 27th, 2021

White water rafting is the best outdoor activity to enjoy in the Smoky Mountains! At Smoky Mountain Outdoors, we offer you a rafting experience you can’t get anywhere else. To help you decide why you should raft with us during your vacation, we’ve made a list of 3 reasons to choose Smoky Mountain Outdoors instead of other rafting companies:

1. Longest Trip on the River

A happy group of people going Upper Pigeon River rafting.Our Upper River Rafting Trip is the longest trip on the river. You’ll get 1.5 miles more rafting time than any other rafting trip on the Pigeon River! More time spent on the river means more time having fun. When you try our Upper River Rafting Trip, you’ll get to enjoy a 6.5 mile trip down class 3 and 4 rapids. You don’t have to be an experienced paddler to go on this adventure — our certified guides will help you the entire trip! Our guides will navigate you through big waves, big drops, and around rocks as you enjoy the beauty of the Smoky Mountains in a whole new way. We also have a Lower River Rafting Trip that includes a scenic float down the river for 5.5 miles. For the ultimate adventure, purchase one of our Pigeon River Combo Packages and enjoy both our Upper River and Lower River rafting trips!

2. We Have the Nicest Facilities

Another reason you should choose Smoky Mountain Outdoors over other rafting companies is because we have the nicest facilities. You can expect to get wet during your white water rafting trip, which is why we recommend bringing both a towel and a change of clothes. We have the best place for you to clean up after your adventure before heading to your next activity! You can easily shower, change clothes, and get ready for more fun in the Smoky Mountains, whether that’s visiting another attraction or going out to dinner!
