The Pigeon River offers something for everyone. Adventure down the Upper or Lower section... Or you can do both! Each section is about 6 miles long. The quick shuttles combined with the close proximity to the Gatlinburg/ Pigeon Forge area make this river truly convenient. We have individual, child, and group rates.

We decided to give whitewater rafting a try while on vacation in Pigeon Forge. There are many rafting outfits out there but Wildwater seemed to be the best. We saw other rafting companies out on the river and they were rafting but not the way Wildwater does it. Wildwater makes your trip an adventure not just a trip down the... More

This was our first rafting tour and were going to start with the easy lower River Tour, but the people there convinced us to go with the Upper River which is Class 3 and 4s. We LOVED IT!!! The tour guides were friendly and fun, they made sure we knew how to handle ourselves before even getting in the raft.... More

We had an amazing time during our tour of the Smoky Mountains in the back of an open air Jeep. Our tour guide (Grady James) was great, his knowledge of the area and his ability to tie in local sites to his own family's history made the tour even better. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking to see... More

We rode all 12 ziplines with Michael" Del Rio" and Eric. These men rock!!! This was not our first time to zip line either, but the best zip experience ever.... More

We finished off our 7-day band trip to NYC, NY with a stop in Hartford at Wildwater Pigeon Rafting Center. We were traveling with 63 kids and numerous chaperones. The folks there were so nice, the place was clean and well organized, and they even had stuff available for the kids to do while they were waiting their turn on... More

My two bestfriends and I had initially booked this trip as a getaway from the city. I am more experienced to adventure and outdoor activities, while my two boys are more accustomed to city life. Wildwater Rafting is definitely a gateway to adventure. As a group we had decided in booking the "triple waterfall adventure" package. This package consists of... More

We had a GREAT time rafting the Upper Pigeon River. Initially we were a little apprehensive about the description of the rapids, since we were taking our eleven year old son on his first white water rafting tour. Our guide, David, was very knowledgeable, and made sure we were all very wet by the end of the trip. It was... More
