THINGS TO DO

The Great Outdoors Is Greater In Gatlinburg

The Mountains are Calling! Gatlinburg is perfectly suited for big adventures in the great outdoors.  

Experience your own mountaintop adventure right from downtown.  Soar to the top of Anakeesta Mountain on a one-of-a-kind Chondola.  Walk across the longest pedestrian Skybridge in North America. Ride the Ober Gatlinburg Aerial Tram to a mountain of fun. However, these popular attractions barely scratch the surface of what Gatlinburg has to offer in the out-of-doors.
 
Families, friends, and couples come to Gatlinburg to enjoy it all.  Ziplines and whitewater rafting, world-class golf and fishing, and 800 miles of hiking trails in Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Gatlinburg is one of America’s premier outdoor destinations. Biking, bird watching, and horseback riding are also recommended activities to try while you’re outside in Gatlinburg.
