Five Rivers Adventures


Five Rivers Adventures, Inc. is a family owned and operated whitewater rafting company established in 1997 located on the beautiful Big Pigeon River in Hartford, TN. Our company boasts one of the finest outdoor attractions in the Eastern Tennessee and Western North Carolina areas. We are located approximately 40 minutes from Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, TN and 45 minutes from Asheville, NC. 

We offer full-service, guided whitewater rafting trips for all ages and skill levels. Our staff are second to none. All of our guides are professionally trained, both as river guides and as medical care providers. Our guides average over 12 years of whitewater experience to provide not only a fun and exciting trip, but more importantly a safe one, as well!

No matter what the size of your group, we can accommodate your needs and wants and provide a day of unforgettable memories for all. Children as young as three years old can participate on our 
“lower” whitewater “float” section and those eight years and above can do the “upper” section of the river which is 5+ miles of intermediate whitewater featuring 15 Class III rapids and 3 Class IV rapids.

Our outpost is conveniently located in Hartford, TN directly off Interstate 40. We are less than a 1/2 mile from the exit ramp and have our own “takeout” which means our customers spend less time on buses like the other whitewater rafting companies. We also provide a shuttle service from the Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, and Sevierville areas for groups of 6 or more.

Treat yourself to a great experience with one of our many whitewater rafting adventures in Tennessee. We’ve been setting the bar high for whitewater rafting service, safety, and fun since 1997.
