Hike to scenic overlooks, waterfalls, or swimming holes. Shred some single track trails by mountain bike or cruise the Tennessee Riverwalk. Tackle a boulder problem or chill at a local crag. Take the van on a cross-country road trip or explore the Southeast in style with all the creature comforts of home.

New for 2022

Outshine Adventures has partnered with Nomad Be Happy and Vandoit to bring a campervan rental fleet to Chattanooga. Anyone seeking an immersive outdoor experience in the best outdoor town will find what they're looking for in these vans! The vans have a modular design that allows for customization in layout and functionality that can accommodate a variety of travelers. All three vans can sleep/seat 4 people comfortably for overland travel and camping. Van options include folding murphy beds with mattresses, kitchen pod with sink and dometic fridge, outdoor shower, thule awning, accent lighting, TV, solar + shore power, cookware, and outdoor stove. Everything you need to adventure outdoors and still have the creature comforts of home. The new Outshine Adventure van can transport up to 10 guests plus gear during guided tours and then transform into a camper van for renters to adventure differently. The rental fleet will include outdoor gear add-ons like inflatable paddle boards or bikes to fully equip travelers to explore Chattanooga’s outdoor spaces on their own. Custom itineraries and all-inclusive packages are on the horizon.
