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.

My 12 year old daughter wanted to do the zipline...I was terrified. But the staff was so wonderful and I felt completely secure leaving my "baby" in their hands. The instruction portion was great and as I took pictures from the ground, she was ALL smiles going from side to side on the practice tower. I met her at the... More

This is the second time that we have Zip lined with Wildwater and it just keeps getting better! Mike and Steve were highly engaging, shared valuable information with the group, put safety first and most importantly made sure that we had an amazing experience. If anyone is thinking of Zip linning in the Gatlinburg area then there is only one... More

While trying to decide what to do while in Gatlinburg, we had someone recommend zip lining. I did not think my wife was interested so we went on. Well we decided to track the gentleman down and he told us of a great zip line. It was a bit further out but was to be worth the drive. We got... More

5 of us went zip lining and 5 of us loved it! Our guides Trent and Steve-o were very professional, informative and very safety conscious! We worked our way up to the very beautiful longer runs and enjoyed all of it along the way! Thanks! Jocelyn Hankins

Zip lining is a must do in Tennessee. When making reservations be sure you book the full canopy tour. Can't beat the last run .25 mile in 45 seconds. AWESOME

Jerod and Jedi mike were our guides for the zip line canopy tour. My husband and I had zip lined in Mexico and wanted to give our kids the experience too. Well our 10 year old son is afraid of heights. The baby steps you go through were the secret to helping him get through it and also enjoy himself.... More

Mike and Steve M were the best canopy guides that anyone could ask for. They were very friendly and knowledgeable about the history of the forest we were in and the act of ziplining itself. I had a great time. I highly recommend Wildwater.

The zip lines were great! All very different in length and experience. This was our first time zip lining and would defiantly go back. The facilities were good and check in was very simple. The staff were all very kind. Our guides Cena and Jared were fantastic; funny, knowledgeable and patient. Thank you for a great expiriance!
