River Sports Outfitters leads trips on the Tellico, French Broad, Holston, and Tennessee Rivers. We have a rental location at Ijams Nature Center for biking, paddling, and stand up paddle boarding. We also have a similar facility at The Cove at Concord Park which is located on the Tennessee River. We also have Discovery classes and more advanced kayak and stand up paddle boarding classes so you can learn how to be a better boater.
The participants will experience the beauty of East Tennessee on the water or on a bike. They will be able to navigate downtown Knoxville and hit urban wilderness areas that make you feel like you are in the backcountry.
We have experienced guides to help you safely experience the outdoors and discover new passions or fulfill the your desire to get outdoors while you travel. If you are from Knoxville, we want to help you learn where these places are so you can get out more.
