Over 30 Years of Excellence in Whitewater Rafting on the Ocoee River and the Nantahala River

The only experience you’ll need is ours!

Whitewater rafting is a fun, challenging and often hilarious experience - all in the midst of the incredible outdoors. The Nantahala River and the Ocoee River offer visitors to these majestic mountains a low cost, high value adventure filled with memories that will be relived for years. The less adventurous can relax and enjoy an easy float down the scenic Toccoa River.

For over 30 years, Rolling Thunder River Company has professionally guided hundreds of thousands of rafters down the feisty Nantahala River in western North Carolina and the rambunctious Ocoee River which runs through Tennessee/North Georgia. We only run dam-controlled rivers which means consistent, predictable water flows every day of the rafting season so you won't face last minute cancellations due to lack of rainfall.

Whether you are a skittish first-timer or an experienced paddlers, we have a trip that's perfect for you. Just bring your spirit of adventure, a desire to get wet and we'll provide the rest of the ingredients for an invigorating one-of-a-kind outdoor experience. Add an Ocoee rafting or Nantahala rafting trip to your vacation itinerary and experience the mountains with Rolling Thunder.
