Minutes away from our Gatlinburg condos, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is the most visited park in the United States. Thousands of people come to see the natural beauty of the Smokies, but not everyone feels comfortable hiking in the woods by themselves. If you are looking for expert guides to take you through the best paths and trails in the National Park, look no further than A Walk in the Woods. Vesna and Erik Plakanis, the owners of A Walk in the Woods, have been taking guests on intimate journeys through the Smokies for 15 years.

A Walk in the Woods offers a variety of services for their clients, including nature walks, backpacking, hikes, classes, seminars, trip planning and equipment rentals. Vesna and Erik have guided over 55,000 people through the Great Smoky Mountains National Park! Both guides are extremely knowledgeable about the wildlife and history of the Smokies. Guests will learn which mushrooms and plants are edible, the traditions of the Cherokee, and basic outdoor survival skills. A Walk in the Woods will even provide lunch and local transportation to and from the park for additional fees.

After a fun day of hiking in the Smokies, you will be ready to retire to one of our Gatlinburg condos. Highlands Condominium offers luxurious lodging featuring private balconies, whirlpool tubs, and fully equipped kitchens. With incredible amenities and an unbeatable location close to the National Park, Highlands Condos have everything you need for an unforgettable vacation.
