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!
