“Enjoyed a great trip down the Little Pigeon Forge River”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013

Our family enjoyed a great trip down the Little Pigeon with our NOC guide! Find the coupons they do have them and you get a good bit off your adventure. The NOC store is great we enjoyed browsing just a little expensive for us. We will go on another white water rafting trip through them and visit their store again.

“Rock Wall”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013 via mobile

We took our three children to NOC to let them conquer the rock wall. Needless to say our daughter (who is five) made it to the top!! (With just a little help). One of our sons made it half way before he decided to come down and the other just barely made it a full body length up. The children were very comfortable with the bylayer and he seemed to enjoy it just the same. I would highly recommend trying the wall when stopping in.

“Noc Gatlinburg Tenn.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

More than enough to do .Canspend several days doing activities. Very affordable. Class II ,III and IV rapids. Even a novice can navigate most runs of the river. The guides are the best in the world. They make you feel comfortable, work in teams and are extremely knowledgable . Best zip line lines ever. The staff throughout will treat you as of you are a VIP. Area use during the Atlanta Olympics and remains in the same condition. Many special events through out the year . A must if you,are planning an inexpensive adventure.

“First White Water Rafting Trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

We took our 10-year old granddaughter on the Upper Pigeon River with Johnny on 7 August 2013. We had a fabulous time! They give you a good training session beforehand and we felt safe with Johnny. Our granddaughter had the time of her life and we will definitely return with more family members next year. Thanks NOC and Johnny for a lot of fun!

“Great White Water Rafting!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2013

Our family loved our rafting trips with Nantahala Outdoor Center! We had two groups... the older ones rafted the Upper Pigeon with Johnny, and the younger ones rafted the Lower Pigeon with Kate. Both groups had fantastic experiences!! On the Upper Pigeon, we experience the excitement of Class III-IV rapids, and while the Lower Pigeon was considerably tamer, the guides made it super fun for the youngsters with their water cannons and shenanigans! A GREAT time was had by all! Thank you, Johnny and Kate!!
