Everyday's an adventure in Gatlinburg. If you love the great outdoors you're in the right place. Start the day with an early morning tee time at the award-winning Gatlinburg Golf Course. Hit the hiking trails for a picnic lunch then head out for a little horseback riding as the sun goes down on another beautiful Gatlinburg day. Or skip the horseback and see how life looks from the treetops with an exciting ziplining romp.

Summer Activities at Ober Gatlinburg

There's a lot more to Ober than just great skiing.

Ober Gatlinburg is one of the best ways to experience the Smokies. Take a ride up the Aerial Tramway or enjoy a trip on the Scenic Chairlift to take in a great view with good company. Let the kids loose for a wild ride down the Alpine Slide or try not to get lost in the Amaze'n Maze. And definitely don't leave before heading over to see one of the Smoky Mountains signature sights: the beautiful black bears at the Wildlife Encounter exhibit!
