Ober Gatlinburg combines fun family activities with the gorgeous mountain sightseeing. Here are the best activities to get the most out of your day at this Gatlinburg favorite.



Ober Gatlinburg Tramway

Getting to Ober Gatlinburg is half the fun on the Ober Gatlinburg Tramway. This enclosed cable car takes guests on a breathtaking 2.1-mile ride up Mt. Harrison. The whole family can marvel at the beautiful sight of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park during the short 10-minute ride to the mountain’s peak.



Wildlife Encounter

Visit Ober Gatlinburg’s very own black bear family at the Wildlife Encounter. Guests can also watch playful river otters, beautiful Bobcats, wily foxes and more forest animals native to the Smoky Mountains.



Ski Mountain Coaster


Enjoy twists, turns and dips through the woods bordering the Smokies on the Ski Mountain Coaster. Riders can leisurely cruise through the track or pump up the thrill level to reach speeds up to 25 miles per hour.



Indoor Ice Skating

One of the best ways to spend summer vacation is ice skating in Ober Gatlinburg. Take a break from the heat, lace up some skates and have fun with the family on the 140’x75’ indoor ice skating arena.
