Canoeing and Kayaking in Gatlinburg
It should come as no surprise that Gatlinburg, Tennessee—also known as the Gateway to the Smoky Mountains—is famous for its outdoor Gatlinburg activities. Hiking, biking, jogging, and exploring are a couple of the well known activities, but we can’t forget to include water-related adventures as well. Kayaking and canoeing are two such “wonderful” experiences that are guaranteed to make your upcoming Gatlinburg vacation a memorable one!
Walking trails along the banks of Little Pigeon River can be a great way to while away some extra hours of your getaway, especially since your Cabin Rental Store vacation home may be located close by, but don’t you want to get out there and FULLY experience the joys of nature as you peacefully paddle your way through some of the most beautiful landscape in all the world? Here’s how you can bring the vacation fun to the next level during your stay!
Renting the Equipment
We’re pretty sure you won’t be packing a canoe, kayak, or any of the equipment that goes along with this type of adventure in your carry-on, so your first stop will be finding a spot to rent the equipment! Because outdoor activities rank so high here in our hometown, the plethora of equipment rental places available can make it difficult for you to choose the right one—which is where we come in!
River Romps Tubes and Kayak Rentals in nearby Sevierville is a great place to start. Offering lifejackets, shuttles, and tubing tours along with the kayak rentals, their inexpensive prices make this a budget friendly way to explore Little Pigeon River. River Run Canoe & Tubing, also in Sevierville, is where you want to go for your canoe; the adventures never end on your Smoky Mountain vacation! Even better, both these places offer guided tours, allowing you to fully enjoy the experience without worries or fears!
Where to Go for Kayaking in Gatlinburg
Now that you have your equipment, where do you take it to get it wet? Chances are you will be cruising on whatever waterway is nearest to where you rented your equipment, but just in case, here are a few places that will guarantee the fun continues when you go kayaking in Gatlinburg!
The Pigeon River and its counterpart, the Little Pigeon River, offer a mixture of tranquil waters, rocky rapids, and breathtaking scenery! Douglas Lake is another fun place to paddle around and is large enough that you can still find some tranquil and secluded spots in spite of its popularity.
