There’s a lot planned for you on your Smoky Mountains tour to Newfound Gap. Before your adrenaline-charged 4x4 off-road adventure, you'll depart in an iconic, open-air Pink® Jeep® Wrangler from of our convenient Pigeon Forge, TN, location.

From there, Sugarlands Visitor Center is your first stop. You’ll learn the history of the towns we pass along the way.

From Sugarlands Visitor Center, you'll ascend 3,000 feet on paved roads. You’ll pass through a mixed forest made up of a mix of trees and smells that mimic that of the boreal forests that form a ring just south of the Arctic Circle. Discover how the Smokies got their name, stop for amazing photo opportunities and hear more of local geology and history.

Guided Tour of Newfound Gap
You’ll arrive at Newfound Gap, which is nearly 1 mile above sea level. You’ll see part of the mighty Appalachian Trail. Rockefeller Memorial is where U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt stood to dedicate the Great Smoky Mountains National Park on Sept. 2, 1940.

But Newfound Gap’s main attraction is its stunning viewpoint. It stretches as far as your imagination no matter the season. April and May bring wildflowers. The summer brings rolling and layered green hues. The fall features vibrant autumn colors. And, the winter reveals the true scale of the Great Smoky Mountains after its leaves have fallen.

The return trip from Newfound Gap includes stops for more photos. You’ll see the streams that ultimately feed the Gulf of Mexico via the mighty Mississippi River. A short nature walk brings yet more discoveries.

Thrilling 4x4 Off-Road Experience

Your professional tour guide has been expertly trained to give you an experience unlike any other in the Great Smoky Mountains.

Our guide Jasper was fun and informative. We enjoyed the beautiful views and open air travel - just be sure you dress for the weather! The off road time at the end was exciting, but it is on private land, not in the smoky mountains national park.
