During your trip to the Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge area, take time to enjoy a calm float down Pigeon River which has easily negotiable Class I and II rapids with one Class III rapid near the conclusion of the float trip, and is perfect for everyone age 3 years and up!
This casual six-mile float through the stunning Smoky Mountains will certainly provide a relaxing and tranquil setting for your trip to the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area. Before the float, your guide will give a Safety Talk to ensure everyone has all the knowledge necessary for a fun float down the Pigeon River. During the 2 hour guided float, each person gets to paddle an inflatable kayak and is equipped with a life jacket, helmet, and paddle. This exciting trip will begin at the River Outpost, and a bus will be waiting at the end of your float to transport you back to the Outpost.
While preparing for your float keep in mind that you will be on the river, so you will get wet! Wear shorts and a t-shirt made of quick dry material. Be sure to wear shoes that will securely stay on your feet like sneakers, river sandals, or water shoes. There are changing facilities with hot showers on site, so bring a dry change of clothes and a towel. If you want to bring a camera, only do so if it is waterproof. Also keep in mind that a professional photographer will take photos of your trip which will be available for purchase.
