Big Bear Rafting

The rolling peaks and rushing waters of the Great Smoky Mountains provide the backdrop for Big Bear Rafting's rafting treks. Led by local river guide Daniel Sutton, each fully escorted rafting trip pits guests against the sprays and currents of the Pigeon River, which snakes its way through the lush mountain landscape along the Tennessee-North Carolina border. Before you grab your paddle, read on to learn more about each trip:

  • Upper Pigeon Whitewater Rafting: Beginning at the state line, this adrenalin blasting trip finds rafters navigating their way through five miles of Class III and IV rapids. When they're not concentrating on the rapids, rafters can take in the scenery of the Big Pigeon River Gorge, which cuts a scenic path through the surrounding mountains.
  • Lower Pigeon Scenic Rafting: Available at limited times throughout the year, this easygoing journey takes place in the beginner-friendly Class I and II rapids of the Lower Pigeon River. The scenery is just as awe-inspiring as that of its big brother; the river flows through the heart of the stately Cherokee National Forest, where towering timbers provide cool, pine-scented protection from the sun's UV rays and dirty looks.

A great group of people. We had an wonderful trip down the river. Our guide Mitch, was an excellent guide. Between rapids he would let us know what we were heading into and what we needed to do to make it thru smoothly. I highly recommend Big Bear Rafting for a fun trip.
