Outdoor Rafting Adventures
For those who are looking for more than just tubing down a lazy river, Outdoor Rafting Adventures offer up white water rafting near Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg and Sevierville areas. These are two hour professionally guided rafting tours on two different courses are suitable for novice and the experienced thrill seekers. This is a great way to be introduced to white water rafting. This to me sounds like one of those adventures where the whole family can participate and it could easily become the highlight of your summer vacation to the Smokies!
Upper Section of the Pigeon Forge River:
This is a two-hour exciting rafting adventure that includes many class 3 & 4 rapids! Expect to get wet if you choose this section of the river. The minimum age and size for this section of the river is 8 years old and 70 pounds, but even so, suitable for beginners and non-swimmers! That’s what they say, in my opinion, you would have to be pretty fearless to attempt these rapids if you’re a non-swimmer! You may want to consider the next section first just to be sure!
Lower Section of the Pigeon Forge River:
On this section, they will allow to bring along children as young as 3 years old. This two-hour trip includes beautiful scenery and some small rapids. Great for young and old alike, this is a great way to introduce the family to rafting and the beauty of the river! It is times like these that your kids will remember for a lifetime!
When you come to the end of your two-hour fun packed adventure, they have changing rooms and restrooms right next to the river. The guides are all certified in CPR and first aid. For a professional, safe and exciting experience we recommend you give Outdoor Rafting Adventures a try!
And as always – when you’re looking for a great Smoky Mountain Cabin near this rafting adventure look no further than Smoky Mountain Golden Cabins where we offer cabins ranging in size from 1-6 bedrooms, many are secluded or offer great views of the mountains and all are filled with top-notch furnishings and amenities!
