If you are looking for an exhilarating summer activity, try rafting down the Ocoee River. Whether you’re a novice or veteran rafting enthusiast, different course levels make for a good time for kids and adults. First timers will benefit from expert guides who lead rafters through tumultuous waters, all while witnessing beautiful scenery along the way.
While in the raft, it is important to be alert for what is next around the bend. However, there is no need to worry, since your guide will tell you exactly how to take on the rapids and navigate the rocks in stride. Though your arms may be sore from paddling, it’s a great rush and a challenge to be out on the river whitewater rafting.
High Country Outfitters’ outpost on the Ocoee River (known as High Country Adventures), is the place to go for this exciting whitewater rafting adventure. If you feel daring, raft down the Ocoee River, or take it slow down the Hiwassee River. Trips down the Hiwassee are open to ages six and up, while the Ocoee is open to ages 12 and up. Pricing varies, but there are specials on Sundays and combo trip special offers available. (800) 233-8594, 430 Highway 64 East, Ocoee, TN, 37361, www.hcrivers.com
