  • All aboard! Settle into comfortable seats in a historic train car, whose wide windows offer sweeping views of the landscapes that will soon be rolling by. Hear the whistle blow and feel the engine hum to life as you begin your journey.

    Clatter along the rushing Nantahala River as you climb through the forested slopes of the Great Smoky Mountains. Rumble through dark tunnels, pass glistening lakes, and chug through mountain valleys into a deep river gorge. Keep an eye out for folks paddling along the rapids below.

    Cross over the historic Trellis Bridge high above Fontana Lake, then take advantage of an hour layover at the Nantahala River. Spend time exploring the area and stop for lunch. Meals can be purchased on board the train or at one of the local restaurants.

    When you're ready to head back, catch the return train to Bryson City, getting another opportunity to snap stunning photos along the way. This exciting train tour of the Great Smoky Mountains serves up a day of fun with breathtaking views!

  • For this experience, our partners are taking extra measures to help prevent any potential spread of COVID-19. Our partner’s number one priority is to help protect their guests by wearing face coverings when appropriate. They kindly request each guest to have a face covering to use while at their facility. These coverings may include a cotton face mask, a disposable face mask, or a bandana. While they aim to provide soap and hand sanitizer whenever needed, they request you bring your own to guarantee availability. Additionally, our partners will be implementing a more orderly check-in system and ask that only one person from each party come inside to check-in. Furthermore, our partners request that each person completes an online waiver prior to arrival.
