Anakeesta, offers a unique outdoor mountain experience for all ages. Begin with a scenic ride from Downtown Gatlinburg to the summit of Anakeesta mountain on the Chondola’s quad chair or enclosed 6 person cabin where you will arrive at  Firefly Village, a whimsical treehouse-themed village that features quaint shopping at the Great Outdoors Trading Company, Catching Fireflies and the Adventure Outpost. Grab some delicious Southern BBQ at the Anakeesta Smokehouse or enjoy a hot chocolate, coffee, ice cream, cake or delectable pie and Pearl's Pie in the Sky.


From there you can stroll through the scenic Tree Canopy Walk which includes 16 hanging bridges suspended more than 50 feet in the air, soar through the trees on Gatlinburg’s fastest dual-racing zip lines, climb through the Anakeesta Treehouse Village Playground, discover treasures at the Anakeesta Gem Miing Company, walk the interpretive Memorial Forest Trail or simply sit back and enjoy the breathtaking views of Mt. LeConte and sparkling lights of Downtown Gatlinburg.


Discover the magic that’s in the mountains.
