Whitewater Rafting in the Smokies

Imagine white foam rushing over the top of your raft, your gaze fixed squarely ahead, hoping to avoid that next big rock!  This is just one scenario a person might experience on a whitewater rafting Smokies Adventure. 

The Pigeon River and Nantahala River are two of the most visited bodies of water in the Smoky Mountains for whitewater rafting.  A trusty guide will help guide you down one of these scenic rivers, maneuvering through the rapids of white foam.  It can all be possible here in the Smokies!

If you're ready for an awesome ride down a Smoky Mountain river, check out the following commercial rafting businesses.  They'd be happy to help you plan your next river excursion.

Note that there is no whitewater rafting in the immediate Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge area.  Most outfitters are located in Hartford, Tenn. at Interstate 40, about 45 minutes from Gatlinburg.
