Join the Ijams Outdoor Academy as we explore the Tennessee River. You will delight in the beauty of Downtown Knoxville’s waterfront on a guided and instructional canoe tour. On this trip, we’ll travel to Knoxville’s riverside adventure hot spots. We will paddle along the shores and boardwalks of Ijams Nature Center, dip our paddle into three rivers at one time at Forks of the River, and see the new riverfront Greenway and Blueway development near Suttree’s Landing. View the area’s mountain bike trails, greenways, hiking trails and riverside cliffs on this 7-mile paddle, and maybe even get the chance to see a bald eagle flying above. This trip is recommended for ages 8 and up. The fee is $30 per person or $60 per canoe*, and includes all equipment rentals and instruction. To register, please call (865) 577-4717, ext. 110.
*Per canoe fees are designed for families that would prefer to stay together with their children in the middle of the boat. For ages 4-6 up to 2 children can ride in the center. One child between the ages of 7-10 can ride in the center. Children over the age of 10 should ride in one of the canoe seats, and will be charged as an adult.
