About the trip
Adventure in the Appalachians
Great Smoky Mountains National Park is one of United States's most popular. Known for the wild diversity of plant and animal life, the park is nestled on the border of Tennessee and North Carolina - in the heart of the ancient Appalachian mountains. The rolling ridges of the peaks and the lush forests welcome and inspire visitors in nearly any season.
Spend a week seeing the park from all angles as you hike its trails, paddle its rivers, and learn of its history and ecology from an expert guide. In the evenings, you'll unwind in a luxury tent and enjoy live music, games, and delicious food during your stay at Under Canvas.
