High Country Adventures has been rafting on the Ocoee River since 1978. We offer trips on the Middle Ocoee with up to Class IV rapids - The Class III and IV rapids tumble down 269 feet during the course of the 5-mile ride, which continuously traverses such colorfully named stretches at Double Suck, Tablesaw, and Broken Nose. The rough-riding waters flow through steep, scenic gorges lined with pine forests before paddlers take on the last ferociously frothing waters at Hell Hole.For those feeling even more adventurous we offer full river trips that include Class V rapids and the Olympic Course from the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games. High Country Adventures also offers cabins, campgrounds, caving & rock climbing trips as well as a low ropes course great for team building. We look forward to helping you plan your adventure!

We had a great time and can't wait to do it again next year (especially with Groupon promotion). Out guide Rachel was great! She was very knowledgeable about the river and nature, and was a great navigator. She made our group of 5 feel like a real team. Our time slot was the very last group of the rafters for... More

This was my first time rafting so I was a little nervous because I believe the rapids were rated at a 3/4. However we had a great time and no one fell out. Our guide, Gavin, was AMAZING. He made sure we were safe and he was even knowledgeable and funny. He also would challenge us to do little bits... More

We have just returned from a trip to Ocoee, TN this past weekend. We went rafting with High Country. What a fantastic experience. Benji was our informative and knowledgeable guide. We had a blast!!! We have previously rafted at Yosemite. The Ocoee River offers more continuous rapids and less float time than the Merced River. The cost was also much... More

Our family of four had an awesome family getaway with High Country Adventure during our kids' fall break. We stayed in one of their cabins and had great fun kayaking, caving and rafting. The cabin was rustic, but very clean and perfect for getting unplugged (the kids, 12 and 15, actually didn't complain a bit about the lack of wifi... More

I loved the whole experience! Our rafting guide, Bandy, was so funny and obviously a tenured rafting guide. He was welcoming and very clear with his instructions and was able to guide our group into doing some awesome surfing and have a great time. He took the time to get to know us and didn't treat us like we were... More

The Trip is a Waterfull experience! Very fun and Exciting! We showed up about one hour early to sign waivers and listen to the safety speech! The bus ride took about 25 minutes to reach the launch point, and it's all downhill from there! The water is a little chilly, but as long as the Sun is out it's not... More

I've been rafting many times on the Ocoee. This time it wasn't just floating down Rapids. We got a tenured guide who knew all the surf spots, history of the river, and who was hilarious. BANDY is the only guide to go with and you will have a blast. Highly recommended!!!
