Whether you are biking along the Blue Ridge Parkway or hiking the trails of Chimney Rock State Park, the Blue Ridge Mountains are breathtaking from all points of view! However, nothing compares to the views that you’ll find on the Green River.

Affordable Fun

For a full day on the Green River, you can expect to spend only $14! If you are looking for an excellent way to experience the great outdoors without breaking the bank, Green River Cove tubing is an excellent option. Tubing is an awesome and affordable way to cool off during the warmer months of the year!

Tips for Your Trip

  • Wear water shoes and leave the flip-flops at home. You may step on rocks at the bottom of the river, which isn’t fun if you’re wearing flip-flops!
  • Keep valuable belongings out of the Green River. Although the river is relatively peaceful, there are some robust rapids. The last thing that you want is for your favorite pair of sunglasses to go fly-fishing!
  • Know how to swim. The Green River is relaxing, but it isn’t considered a lazy river. There is no guarantee that you won’t bounce out of your raft and into the river, but that is half of the fun!
