For the safety of your family, we do require that no little ones under the age of three ride in the rafts. Which adventure would be the best for you? Take a quick look and find out!
Upper Pigeon River Whitewater Rafting Adventure
This adventure is sure to provide excitement for the entire family. These rapids range in class from III to IV. Take in all the breathtaking natural beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains and Cherokee National Forest around you while rafting this exciting five mile trek of the Pigeon River. Due to the intensity of this adventure and the weight requirement of the raft, all rafters must be 8 years or older.
Extreme Upper Pigeon River Whitewater Rafting Adventure
This adventure is extremely similar to the upper Pigeon River adventure, but there is a twist. With this “extreme” rafting expedition, your group will be put on a smaller boat. Being in a smaller boat will ensure that you feel the excitement of every rapid you raft over. And don’t worry, you’ll be good and wet by the end of this five mile adventure, so be sure to bring a change of clothes if you’re heading to dinner after! Again, it is required that all rafters for this adventure must be at least 8 years old.
Lower Pigeon River Whitewater Rafting Adventure
If you have young ones in your group, or if your group would rather take it easier, the lower Pigeon River adventure is perfect for you. This package is also great for people who have never been whitewater rafting or for people who are not the most experienced with the rapids. This course is a great way for beginners to “get their feet wet.” We only require our rafters to be at least three years old on this expedition, so the whole family can enjoy that River Rat thrill together!
Daycation Rafting Adventure
The daycation package is perfect for the water lovers. With this package, we give you a full day of thrills. To start the day, your group will raft the upper Pigeon River. We will provide you with a lunch break so you can replenish and refuel for the rest of your day at River Rat. After lunch, you will have the choice of either rafting or kayaking the lower Pigeon River. Bundling with our daycation package will save you the most money and provide you the most thrills.
