Top 5 Reasons to Go Rafting in the Smoky Mountains With Your Group
Do you want to do something fun with your group while you’re in town? You have so many options! There are theme parks, entertainment complexes, and, of course, the national park! But if you have thrill seekers, then you want to do something exciting. Here are the top 5 reasons why you should go rafting in the Smoky Mountains with your large group:
1. Great for Bonding
It doesn’t matter if you’re in town for a family reunion, work trip, or with a ton of friends, going white water rafting is a great way to bond with each other. You all work together to steer the raft while you’re out on the water. You all listen to the guide and do what you’re told. You’ll spend time together driving to the outpost, preparing to go on the water, and head back to your cabin afterwards. White water rafting is a great way to bond with the people you’re on vacation with!
2. Do Something Exciting
Some people enjoy a relaxing, quiet vacation while others want to try something different. Rafting in the Smoky Mountains is exciting! You can experience class 3 and 4 rapids during a good trip. There’s nothing more exciting than floating down the river in a raft, bumping and dipping along the rapids as you paddle through the water. Even on the calmer parts of the water, you’ll have so much fun doing something new and different!
3. Group Pricing
We know how expensive it can be taking a group to do an activity. Luckily, most outposts have group pricing so you get a great deal! River Rat is one outpost that offers special group pricing, and you can even get a cabana so your group can relax. Smoky Mountain Outdoors is another white water rafting place where you can get a deal for your group. SMO Rafting also has other packages to help you save money!
4. Spend Time Outside
When you visit the Great Smoky Mountains, you’ll want to spend time outside. The views are incredible, and there’s nothing like breathing in mountain air. If you want to do outdoor activities with your group, rafting is just one of many you’ll enjoy! As you go down the river, you’ll enjoy river views, getting splashed with water, and closer to fall, you could enjoy the start of leaves changing colors!
5. Accommodates Any Group Size
Another perk of rafting in the Smoky Mountains is no matter what size your group is, you can all enjoy rafting! You may have the perfect amount of people to fit in a single raft, so you can all have fun rafting together! Even if your group has more people than will fit in a single raft, you can split into multiple rafts and enjoy being with the people who are with you. Plus, you can spend time together as a whole before and after the trip.
These are just a few reasons why you should go rafting in the Smoky Mountains.
