Cherokee Adventures has been an owner-operated rafting company on the Nolichucky River since 1979 and we know how to cater to your needs.  We offer an authentic river experience to anyone interested in spending time in the outdoors, from experienced explorers to first-time adventurers.  Those seeking thrill and excitement can choose our upper-Nolichucky option, while those looking for a more relaxed family experience can choose a lower trip. Depending on water level, we offer the option of using ‘funyaks’ for a more personalized rafting experience.  Both sections include beautiful scenery and our guides can provide natural and cultural history of the area.

Enjoyment is our number one goal!  Our guides are willing to stop and encourage play and fun with our customers, from surfing at a hole to swimming in safe areas, and we do our best to provide visitors with a memorable experience that they will look back on years afterward.  We provide all-inclusive packages to limit logistical headaches for organizers. We offer primitive and sheltered camping options at a beautiful location on the Nolichucky River in front of the Devil’s Looking Glass; we are conveniently located near other local points of interest as well.
