Co budeš dělat

With over 12 million visitors in 2020, The Great Smoky Mountains National Park was once again the most visited national park in America. Along the southern boundary of the park lies a gem hidden in plain sight, Fontana Lake. Compared to the northern areas of the park, visitation here is sparse. Join me for a day of hiking in the park and stand-up paddle boarding on the lake!

Our day will begin at Prince Boat Dock where we'll load up and head out for a scenic cruise on Fontana. We'll cruise up the Tuckaseegee River arm, and to the trailhead at the mouth of Forney Creek. From here, we'll hike up a short section of Lakeshore trail up to White Oak Branch trail, following it up to Forney Creek trail, then back down to the boat, making for about a 5 mile, moderately difficult hike.

After returning to the pontoon boat, we’ll choose a secluded cove, secure the boat, and paddle for the rest of our afternoon. Our Tower inflatable SUP’s are stable and forgiving, so beginners to seasoned paddlers will appreciate their performance.

After more than 30 years of exploring Fontana Lake and the mountains around it, I found the opportunity to entertain guests to our mountains and showcase the world class scenery that makes this place so special. As owner of The Sunny Day Adventure Company, I am privileged to lead adventure seekers from all over onto Fontana Lake and the most visited national park in America, The Great Smoky Mountains. Years of experience have been further honed by formal leadership training from the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS) and SOLO Southeast, along with a US Coast Guard Captain Credential. All the training and time on the water is important, but it's nothing without passion and love. When you see it, you'll know why I'm here.

Kde budeš

You will experience the nations most visited national park in a way that 12 million other visitors won't. Accessing the trails of the park from Fontana Lake gives you a nearly exclusive experience compared to the crowds found at other park access points. Fontana is also an ideal spot for standup paddle boarding. You'll paddle secluded coves and flat water in the shadow of the Smoky's. All from the platform of our well outfitted pontoon boat.

We could not have asked for a better experience. Jason was thoughtful and considerate of our needs every step of the way. We would recommend this trip to anyone that would ask us.

I went on the hiking and SUP trip along with my two sisters. We started with a boat ride to the location of the hiking trail on Jason's very clean and tidy pontoon boat! We did a 1.2 mile hike, and I really enjoyed that we got to fully customize the length of our hike and basically whatever else we wanted to. He really made sure we were comfortable and let us know that today was our day! We finished the hike and went to a quiet little cove to paddle board. None of my group knew how to do this, so he was very thorough in showing us techniques to make everything easier. We floated around, relaxed, and told a whole bunch of stories! We all really enjoyed our trip and would definitely go again! - Madelyn

My husband and I did the Hiking and Paddle boarding trip with Jason and it was AMAZING and Jason was AWESOME! From the moment we reached out to him to inquire about the trip he was responsive, helpful, friendly, and so accommodating. Our trip began on his pontoon boat which is the coolest and best equipped pontoon boat I have been on - it is really perfect for all of the tours he runs because of its versatility. It is clean and has a bathroom!! We set out across Lake Fontana and down the Tuck river for our hiking destination. It doesn’t get any better than accessing a hike via the lake. The trail was the right challenge for us and having Jason with us allowed us to relax and enjoy our hike and surroundings while he managed the trail route with lots of interesting dialogue about the area along the way. He was fully equipped with safety equipment as well as the expertise that made us feel perfectly safe. He takes his role as a guide and the responsibility it entails seriously which made us feel great! Once back on the boat we set out for our paddling destination. We are experienced paddle boarders but I really appreciated all of the care and attention he gave towards instructing us on how to safely get on the boards from his boat, informing us of our water route, and then how to safely disembark from our boards back onto the boat. Jason was an excellent water guide as well leading the way and pointing out cool stuff as we paddled. He cared about conservation by picking up any trash along our route. Our ride back to the dock was leisurely so we could enjoy some of the food and beverages we brought aboard as well as the beautiful lake and mountains surrounding. This is a great trip! You cannot experience the Bryson City area without spending time on Fontana lake with Jason and it really doesn’t get any better than accessing your trail by boat. Jason is excellent with his hospitality, all of the specials trip touches, he is super easy going, fun and funny!, very knowledgable about the area, prioritizes safety and truly his mission is to give the guest the experience they want while at the same time sharing this truly special place. He has so many cool trips and is willing to customize so there is really something for everyone! Go on! Book it now - you will not be sorry!
