3 Vacations That Will be Even More Fun with a Day of Rafting in the Smoky Mountains

December 28, 2016 August 24th, 2021

During your trip to the Smoky Mountains this year, you’ll want to make sure to spend an afternoon whitewater rafting down the Pigeon River. This popular water activity is the best way to cool down on a hot day, soak in the beautiful mountain scenery around you and have a blast while doing both! Whether you’re vacationing with friends, kids or just your sweetie, everyone will love a day of rafting in the Smoky Mountains!

1. Friends’ ReunionFriends riding the bus at Smoky Mountain Outdoors.

If you’re planning a friends’ reunion in the Smoky Mountains, be sure to make time for a day of Upper Pigeon River rafting! Not only will rafting be a fun activity that your friends will enjoy, but the Upper Pigeon River tour is faster paced and super exciting, making it a great way to share an adventure with friends who you don’t get to see often or who you want to reconnect with. You and 6 or 7 of your pals will love traveling 6.5 miles down the river, maneuvering around big rocks and splashing through fast rapids! And you’ll be guided by a certified professional, so all this excitement is also completely safe. A few hours of rafting will add a special flare to your annual friends’ reunion!

2. Couple’s Getaway

We think that a weekend in the mountains is exactly what you and your special someone need to rest, relax and reconnect. While the majority of your trip will be peaceful and quiet, it’s a good idea to have an outdoor adventure with your sweetie to get your adrenaline pumping and make some lasting memories! A day of rafting in the Smoky Mountains is the perfect way to do that, especially if you sign up for the Upper Pigeon River Extreme tour. This smaller raft is just big enough for you, your sweetie and the tour guide, making it a more intense, faster ride. You’ll face the biggest waves, the craziest rapids, and you might even catch some air! This is a thrill-seeker’s dream come true and a fun experience to have with your favorite person!

Our Lower Pigeon River Rafting tour is ideal for a group of kids or adults who aren’t comfortable with a fast-paced experience. You’ll still splash through rapids and ride little waves, but the Lower Pigeon tour is safe and fun for people of all ages and experience levels. This makes it a great activity for a kid’s birthday party, a group of youth from your church or a girl scout or boy scout mountain retreat! Since you’ll be getting wet already, all 3 tours go even if it’s raining, so it’s guaranteed fun no matter the weather!
