Outland Expeditions

Planning a Summer Rafting Trip

There are many things to see and do in Southeastern Tennessee. There are seemingly endless mountains, deciduous forest, and miles of curvy country roads reaching as far as the eye can see. A rafting trip down the iconic Ocoee River provides guest with a unique experience uncommon among many other outdoor recreational activities. The river is a place of bonding between families, borders, and languages.  As a guide with 8 years of experience presenting this beautiful place to people from all around the world, I can truly say it is a magical place, full of beauty and wonder.

The Ocoee offers far more than just whitewater adventures.  There are numerous trails for hiking and mountain biking suited for all ages and skill levels.  There are scenic views and countless primitive camping sites.  If the city is calling your name, Chattanooga, Tennessee is just a short 35-45 minute drive from the outpost, depending on traffic and the time of day.

If you are thinking of planning a rafting trip to the Ocoee River this summer, Outland Expeditions is the perfect, and in my biased opinion, the best outfitter in the region.
