So being in the right place at the right time can yield some great moments, while other times yield nothing at all, please keep in mind that this is a wild and natural place that we visitors truly have no control over!

Take a Cades Cove Tour and Discover the Serene Views in TN!

Great Smoky Mountains National Park is full of adventure, wonder, history, culture, flora and fauna, but very few places bring it all-together better than Cades Cove! Our guided scenic drives offer early morning sunrise or sunset timelines as these are the best windows to take advantage of Cades Coves abundant wildlife and scenic mountain views.

Our adventure starts with an interpretive, scenic drive along Wears Valley Road. We will travel through Wears Valley and its countryside, full of adventure and roadside stops, check out local carvers, moonshine tasting, food trucks, old general store, and other short stops can be added to our drive. As we head into the Great Smoky Mountains National Park we will pass through Townsend and enjoy views of the Little River, a short photo opportunity, then it’s on to Cades Cove as we travel along some of the most scenic countryside in the park. We will travel through 11 miles of history, culture, flora and fauna as we enjoy all Cades Cove Looped Road has to offer! Short out and back nature walks into the lives of early settlers and their homesteads, farms and churches as we explore and learn how settlers carved out a life. A stop at the Cades Cove Visitors Center will allow for much more than just a bathroom break! During the ride we will be on the lookout for wildlife like bears, white tailed deer, coyotes, turkey just to name a few and we will always observe and not disturb as we watch from 50 yards or greater via binoculars and field scopes provided!
