River Rafting in the Smoky Mountains!
Things to Consider When Booking a Raft Trip:
Decide if you want intense action, a wilderness experience, a reinvigorating getaway or a bouncy ride with your family.
Everyone participating should discuss with an expert guide what age and weights should participate.
Everybody loves summertime rafting with its hot days and cool water, but don't forget that seasons change each river's atmosphere. Many guests prefer spring flowers and fall leaves, not to mention seasonal discounts.
Here are some of the places to consider for a Rafting adventure:
