Rafting on the UPPER SECTION OF THE PIGEON RIVER is an exciting 2 hour whitewater rafting trip with continuous class III-IV rapids. This fully guided trip is perfect for groups with beginners or intermediate paddlers. Expect to be soaking wet and excited in the big rapids while our experienced guides share with you an unforgettable memory for you all. There are chances to cool off in the summer sun and float beside the boat in the calm stretches of the river. Minimum age is 8 years old or 70 lbs. Suitable for beginners and non-swimmers. More about Upper Pigeon River
Rafting on the LOWER SECTION OF THE PIGEON RIVER is a fun 2 hour rafting experience for those of you who aren’t quite ready for big whitewater but enjoy the outdoors. Children as young as 3 years old are welcomed on this mild introductory whitewater trip. We’ll have fun splashing and swimming if you like or just relaxing in the boat. You will have a guide with you to make your trip enjoyable while you relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery with your family while being splashed by the small rapids. Perfect for non-swimmers and beginner rafters. The Lower Pigeon meets and is scheduled at the same times as the Upper to make it convenient for groups that have people with different desires of excitement. More about Lower River Rafting

Our outpost is conveniently located on the Pigeon River in Hartford TN bordering the Smokies. We are the ending point for the Upper section of the Pigeon River and the beginning point for the Lower section of the Pigeon River. We have many groups that raft both sections—or split up their group so everyone rafts the section they want. Trip times can be scheduled simultaneously for groups that wish to meet at the same time, raft different sections, and return within 15 minutes of each other. Choose a Lower River time that departs 30 minutes prior to an Upper departure for this to work best.

After your trip, plan to change into dry clothes in our new changing rooms and restrooms, right on the river. We have showers and changing rooms. Check out our What to Wear page for more details and pictures of our new changing rooms!

Enjoy your day rafting with our friendly and entertaining guides and staff here for you. All of guides are trained and certified in at least CPR and First Aid, and are here to show you and your group an exciting and SAFE experience. Our goal is to be the highlight of your vacation! Let us share with you rafting memories that will last forever.

Had a great experience with this company! Every contact I had with them were helpful and with a friendly manner. Trent, our guide, was awesome and went above and beyond to make our adventure a fun one. The dressing rooms were clean and the equipment was in good shape. In cooler weather, the wetsuit rental option is worth the reasonable fee. Would I use them again?? YES! ...(but Trent has to learn some new jokes).

“Wonderful ride”

After being given wrong directions from another rafting company and not being able to make those reservations, we scrambled to find someone who had an open spot for that day to accommodate us. We came across Outdoor Adventures and they were so polite on the phone and in person. They explained everything to us. This was my husband and I's first time white water rafting and it was truly amazing! We were the only ones who had booked, so we had our own personal raft trip. KP was a great guide! He was funny and gave us background as we went down the river. Another thing I like is that there was a second boat for safety. That was a big deal for me. I felt safe the entire time!!! Oh and did I mention the beautiful ride down the river!
