Rafting the Lower Pigeon River
with Outdoor Adventures, Inc. in Tennessee
Relax and cool off on this 2-hour guided rafting trip through the Smoky Mountains
on a guided raft with your family. Minimum age is 3 years old and is perfect for
people and families wanting to be near the water, but not yet ready for big whitewater.
There are numerous opportunities to swim in flat water and to be introduced to beginning
Class I, II, and III whitewater. This is a fun trip for everyone with
safety as our number one goal.
You do not need to know how to raft or swim. Your guide will entertain you and maneuver
you through the rapids.
The starting point for the Lower section of the Pigeon River is at our outpost,
where you will get your equipment and instructions and start your rafting adventure.
You will enjoy about 2 hours of time on the river then have a 10 minute return bus
The Pigeon River is conveniently located less than an hour from prime destinations
in the Smokies such as Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, Sevierville, Knoxville, and Asheville,
NC. Visit our
map page for directions
to us. Spend an afternoon with us and you’ll love it!
This trip is a great way to spend your day on the water. If some of your group want
to raft the Upper section, NO PROBLEM. We schedule all Lower trips to run at the
same time as the Upper Section. You meet at the same place and you on the Lower/Milder
section will return about 15 minutes after your friends on the Upper. Perfect time
to change clothes and get ready for your evening plans.
