Whitewater rafting or inner tubing in the Great Smoky Mountains – adventurous or relaxing. Rolling Thunder has just the right adventure for everyone.
What to expect on a trip.
Never been rafting before? Find out what happens on a rafting trip from start (when you’re still dry) to finish (when you’re very wet).
Get acquainted with the family friendly Nantahala River. Watch as rafters cruise through Patton’s Run, a class II rapid, and eventually tackle the only class III on this river – the Nantahala Falls. See their wide grins and hear their exhilarating laughter as they paddle through one splashy rapid after another.
See for yourself why the Ocoee River is often called a “roller coaster on water”. Watch as rafters “ride the bull” through big splashy waves. Check out such rapids as Slingshot, Broken Nose and Tablesaw.
See the relaxed fun on the Toccoa as “toobers” float down this scenic river.
