Located a scenic, 45-minute drive into the Smoky Mountains, Smoky Mountain Outdoors Whitewater Rafting offers the longest whitewater trip on the Pigeon River. Smoky Mountain Outdoors Whitewater Rafting is family owned and operated. Native Tennessean Daniel Jennette is hands-on, having spent years as a raft guide before opening his own company in 1993. Smoky Mountain Outdoors is the oldest continuously owner-operated outfit on the river and is the leader in safety, attention to detail, and fun. Don’t take our word for it – see why our guest reviews make us the top Rafting Company in the Smoky Mountains: Smoky Mountain Outdoors TripAdvisor.
Spend a day with our outstanding staff hearing stories about the area, the wildlife and wildflowers, and their off-season adventures. Our river manager spends winters running rivers in India, Peru, and Africa! Get off the beaten path and have an experience that will make you share your photos and your memories – with your family and friends. Whitewater trips for age 8 and up, scenic float trips for age 3 and up. No experience necessary. Ask about our zipline and mountain biking packages.
