  • Pigeon Forge: French Broad River Helicopter Tour

    1. Pigeon Forge: French Broad River Helicopter Tour

    Two options allow you to choose the perfect flight: The Lake View flight extends past the French Broad River and takes you out to Douglas Lake. Douglas Lake is a 33,000 acre man-made lake with over 450 miles of shoreline. This flight will get you up to 1,500 feet in altitude, allowing you a superb view of the Great Smoky Mountains towards the south. Along the route, you will see areas of farmland and quilt-like patterns of pastures. As you get closer to Douglas Lake you will fly next to Douglas Dam. Lake view is a 6-minute flight covering 12 miles. The most popular option, Extended Lake flight, takes you even further. You will fly directly over Douglas Dam, and then proceed over the lake. In the summer take in astonishing sun-glistening views of the water and the people enjoying their time on the lake. In the winter the water level is lowered, so expect majestic views of exposed island...

What people are saying about Smoky Mountains

Great trip with a great view on the extended tour. Our guide, Collin, was wonderful! Would love to do this again and would likely pick one of the longer mountain tours. It would be totally worth it!

Everything was great the only thing that I did not like is that one of your staff members tried to make fun of us while we were on the scaleBut other than that we had a great experience

The gentleman who boards you was cool and funny and informative ans Phil the pilot rocked ans I don’t mean rocked the helicopter

Very knowledgeable pilot!! Was a great experience for my husband’s first time !!

We enjoyed every minute of it!! It’s worth every penny!! (:
