The zipline canopy tour in the Gatlinburg area that is truly in the wilderness with 2 spectacular zips across the Big Pigeon River! Get away from the crowds, lines and concrete of Gatlinburg & Pigeon Forge for a day of fun in the trees! River crossings, rock cliffs, waterfalls, Rabbit Hole repel, sky bridges, wildlife & more are the things that make the Pigeon River Canopy Tour a once in a lifetime trip. For a full day adventure add a Pigeon River whitewater rafting trip & lunch at the Dog House with Wildwater and receive 10% off your entire days activities all at one location!Enjoy a trip on the only zip line to take you 1200' across the Pigeon River! The Pigeon River Canopy Tours is an adventure that takes you "over the river and through the woods," but not to Grandmas house! Rather this exciting yet not scary ride gives you the opportunity to see the world like you've never seen it before, gliding from tree to tree, learning about your surroundings and taking in the scenery.

This was a "Bucket List" trip that I will do again!! The staff is very friendly and patient. The view was amazing as you travel through the gorge on twelve different zip lines. The rangers, Josh and Ashton were great and it's safety first, but have fun!!

My wife and I had a great time thanks to our guides Trent and JC. Both are very professional (safety first) with an excellent sense of humor. The zip lines are great with an amazing view. The last zip line above the river is a perfect way to finish the tour. I recommend this tour to anyone (beginner or not).

Wow! What a great time. We were able to zip over the Pigeon River, not once, but twice. The last the line a 1/4 of a mile long, with speeds up to 45 mph. Trent and Josh were our quides and did a superb job of keeping us safe and entertaining us. There were 12 lines and it was a... More

I had the best experience with this company. I chose the canopy excursion and it was the best. Had a fun time eith Eric and Josh. The kids loved it, and i myself had a great time. The scheduling was perfect to do both canopy and rafting in one day. The food they serve was also delicious. They are super... More

My husband and I purchased the Waterfall Gorge Canopy Tour with the 12 ziplines in Hartford, TN. Durango and Duke were excellent guides and provided lots of amusing anecdotes! The course does have a lot of stairs so if that is a problem, you may want to pick another activity. We would definitely do this again, but we would probably... More

What a view of the river as you zip across it overhead. The guides are nothing but professionals and love to have fun while guiding you along the trees. I would suggest doing the full course and not the shorter course. The views you will be missing are beautiful. Coming back across is the best of all. 1/4 mile long... More

Great family fun. My kids 11, 13, and 15 loved this experience, as did my husband and I. Both the zip line and white water rafting were fun but zip lining was by far everyone's favorite. My only regret is that I booked the smaller (7 line) zip package as I was unsure how my 11 year old son would... More

My family and I had a great time ziplining with Wildwater. The staff was very helpful and courteous. Although climbing up to the platforms was strenuous, the experience flying through the forest was well worth it! I would definitely recommend Pidgeon River Canopy Tours for anyone looking for something fun to do in the western North Carolina/eastern Tennessee area.

Our family of 6 (ages 14 - late 40's) had a wonderful time within the treetops in Harford, TN. This tour is first-class and we'd go again in a heart beat! Our guides were courteous, personable and taught us everything we need to know to have a fun and safe trip. The last zip line is 1/4 mile long -... More

This was a wonderful trip. I have been zip lining in the past, but not nearly as many or as beautiful. After seeing several of the other places, I was more than happy that I was with the Pigeon River team. I had Jarrod and Turner as guides- and they were both wonderful. We all shared lots of laughs and... More
