Things to Do Around Gatlinburg for an Adventure Seeker’s Journey

We all have that need for adventure hidden inside us. Some of us may have to dig a little deeper to find it than others, but that need exists as surely as we breathe. From big adventures like taking a new job in a new state to the little ones we face each day, it’s how we handle them that makes us the people we are today. Your adventure seeker journey to Gatlinburg can, and will, be everything you are looking for, especially when you follow this guide of things to do around Gatlinburg we’ve compiled just for you!


Day 1: Welcome to the Neighborhood!

Your first day will more than likely be filled with travel, so today’s adventures will mainly be about getting to your Cabin Rental Store escape without becoming TOO frustrated! Unpack your bags, explore every room, opening cabinets and giving the beds test bounces, and take a walk around the neighborhood; this small adventure can still be extremely satisfying to the soul!


Day 2: Riding the Rapids!

Summer visitors Smoky Mountain Outdoors offers a variety of white-water rafting experiences on the Pigeon River; from the simple to the extreme, your white-water adventures promise to be everything you dreamed they could be and so much more! Nothing makes you feel more alive than a ride down the river, bouncing on the swells, and (occasionally!) feeling the cold water splash down your necks and because they have trips that will match the experience levels of all rafters, you won’t need to worry that you can’t do it!


Day 3: Fly High and Fast!

Today’s adventures may test those with a fear of heights; we’re going ziplining with Climb Works! Featuring 2 types of zipline tours, a Treetop one and a Mountain Top one, the worst part of today will be deciding between the 2! During your tree top flight, you can expect to have your head in the clouds for just over 2 and a half hours and offering unparalleled views of the natural landscape below. The mountain top zipline tour also lasts 2.5 hours and offers the chance to ride side by side with the one you love most; there are two lines running alongside each other!


Day 4: How Brave are you?

We’re not saying we believe in ghosts, nor are we saying we don’t, but we are giving you the opportunity to make the decision for yourself with a visit to the Mysterious Mansion, 424 River Road. Open year round and offering a frightfully fun time, the mansion is still owned by the descendants of the original owners and while most of its excitement comes from man-made attractions, there are rumors that some very real haunting goes on inside its doors as well!


Day 5: Take to the Skies Once Again With These Things to do Near Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge

As you continue your adventures in Gatlinburg, we are bringing you back to the skies again; this time on board a 1927 Waco Model 10 Straightwing! Yes, dear friends, you are going to fly the friendly skies in a genuine biplane; Sky High Air Tours even offers leather helmets, goggles, and scarves for photo opps on any of their tours.

Day 6: It’s Time to get Dirty!

If you somehow manage to stay clean during your day 6 adventures of ATV riding through the Tennessee wilderness, you’re doing it wrong! This sport is meant to be an exciting, fast, and dirty adventure and Bluff Mountain Adventures is just the place to help you do it right! Offering a variety of adventures for all skill levels, including one for families, your journey would not be complete without a visit to BMA!


Day 7: The Small Adventures Can Have the Largest Impact

And although this ending is a sad one, imagine how much sadder you would be if you hadn’t rented one of our cozy cabins? Reserve yours today!
