Whitewater Rafting in the Great Smoky Mountains

One of the most fun and exhilarating experiences you can have in the Great Smoky Mountains is whitewater rafting. Whitewater Rafting can be great for a family trip to the mountains, a weekend getaway for a group of friends, or a great bonding experience for co-workers and teammates. No matter what your reason for rafting, Gatlinburg and the Pigeon River will certainly not disappoint. Stay with us at the Glenstone Lodge in Gatlinburg, TN for your next whitewater rafting trip.

Many companies in the area offer guided tours of both the Upper and Lower sections of the Pigeon River. Taking a guided tour is the best way to take on these rapids. Tour Guides know the river and its surroundings better than anyone and will be able to properly guide you through sections of the river safely. While the goal is for everyone in the party to have a great time, the main focus is always safety and guided tours commonly provide you with life jackets, helmets, and the knowledge to keep everyone safe while still having fun.

Whitewater rafting in Gatlinburg is something the whole family can enjoy. Both kids and adults get a kick out of crashing through the river on class 3 and 4 rapids. If you have children under 3 years old, the lower section of Pigeon River is much more tame and suitable for the young ones. A weekend whitewater rafting trip in Gatlinburg can also be a great bonding experience for coworkers and ┬áteammates. Groups must work together and communicate to navigate the river. Rafting brings teams closer together to achieve the common goal of a successful rafting trip, not to mention it’s also a lot of fun.

If you are considering bringing the family or group on a rafting trip in Gatlinburg, choose to stay at the Glenstone Lodge. Glenstone Lodge offers plenty of amenities and comfortable accommodations for you and your rafting crew to stay in style.
