Are you looking for a fun outdoor activity on this summer’s Gatlinburg vacation? Look no further than Big Creek Expeditions! In the whitewater rafting business since 2004, Big Creek Expeditions offers adrenaline pumping whitewater rides in addition to family-friendly river floats. There’s no better way to cool off from the summer heat!
Your professionally guided whitewater rafting adventure will begin on the upper section of Little Pigeon River. Your rafting trip will cover about six river miles and last about an hour and a half! You will experience Class III and Class IV rapids on your rafting journey, all while trained guides steer you through the thrills. Never whitewater rafted before? No problem – there’s no experience necessary to join in! You will get to enjoy the untouched beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains and will gain a new-found appreciation for Pigeon River as you crash and splash through the rapids.
Are you vacationing with younger children, or perhaps just aren’t the whitewater type? The lower section of Pigeon River offers a more scenic, and calm journey that is ideal for kicking back and taking it all in. The lower section stretches five and a half miles through beautiful Smoky Mountain forests. The float trip will give you a chance to splash in the refreshing water and take in your pristine views.
If you can’t get enough of the river, you’ll want to check out Big Creek Expeditions adventure packages. The packages offer combinations of Smoky Mountain activities, including a bundle with both upper and lower river rides and a raft/zipline package that will give you the best of all mountain views!
What do you need to know before embarking on your adventure? You will get wet, so bring a change of clothes for after the trip and a towel for drying off. Proper footwear is required on your trip, and no flip-flops are allowed! Slather on the sunscreen and you will be ready for your journey – the staff at Big Creek will take care of the rest!
Big Creek Expeditions is ideal for large groups, offering discounts to parties of 10 or more. Their water trips are suitable for people of all ages, from 3 to 103! The whitewater expedition is best for children over 8 years of age, while the lower float trip is great for children of all ages.
