Horseback and River Adventure

River Adventures + Scenic Horseback Tour

Our River Adventures + Scenic Horseback Tour packages allow guests to soak up the best excursions in the Smoky Mountains. Pair either your Scenic Float Trip or your Whitewater Rafting Trip with a horseback riding adventure through the Great Smoky Mountains.

Starting your day with a breathtaking backdrop, you will enjoy a 6 mile horseback ride through the foothills of the beautiful Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The trails give spectacular views of Mt. Leconte, as well as mountain streams, wildlife, and a gorgeous spring-fed lake in this 70-acre mountain setting. Experience the history of the Appalachian people on horseback, riding on pioneer trails and seeing the remnants of a moonshine still. Following your horseback riding adventure, guests are encourage to grab lunch before heading over the mountain to Big Creek Expedition’s outpost. After checking in, guests will gear up to head to the Upper Section of the Pigeon River for a heart-pumping, splash-filled paddle down the river or gear up for a relaxing float down the gorgeous and scenic Lower Section of the Pigeon River.


This package does not include lunch provided.
