Let’s disconnect from WiFi and plug into Mother Nature.

It’s human nature to be a part of nature, so let’s take a walk in the woods and explore some beautiful, natural surroundings. It’s essential!

Our tours go into The Great Smoky Mountains National Park (GSMNP) and the neighboring areas.

What we do:

Tours of the Smokies are our passion!


Walking and hiking tours in the Great Smoky Mountains

Typically, we’ll walk 1 to 2 miles at levels ranging from easy to moderate.


Specializing in entertaining bus groups with historical and educational narrations about the area.

The most visited National Park in the United States

with a wide variety of lush vegetation, it’s a temperate rainforest, and has been declared an International Biosphere!

Tours in The GSMNP require a Commercial Use Authorization Permit, which we have acquired, so when you purchase a tour with ‘Tours by Stella’ you are supporting this incredible biosphere, while enjoying a fun and positive experience with nature, away from fast-paced, commercial attractions. 

You may see and learn about:

– Animals / Wildlife 

– Plants / Trees / Flowers

– Salamanders / Bears / Sasquatch

– Cascades / Streams

– Historic Pioneer Structures

– Settler Life

– Native American History

… and more!
