What you'll do

Explore Lookout Mountain, Tennessee from the confort of the Swincar, an innovative electric off-road ATV. Adventure Sports Innovation is the exclusive distributor for Swincar in North America.

Before hitting the trails our guides will equip you with the proper safety gear and introduce you to the Swincar e-Spiders. Once everyone has the knowledge they need to stay safe and drive like pros, we'll start our fast-paced, adrenaline-packed journey through over 300 acres of pristine Chattanooga wilderness.

Along the tour there will be ample opportunities to take group pictures, and because the cars make almost no noise, you are likely to spot deer, horses, wild turkeys, and birds of prey throughout the adventure. We will end our tour back at the entrance to Reflection Riding, where will send you on your way with a smile on your face and a new thirst for outdoor adventure.

Austin delivered a great experience for my wife and me. Austin was very patient and reassuring during the learning phase. The learning phase took about 30 seconds…slightly exaggerated, but they are easy and fun to handle. We ran up on a whole family of deer and had a nice picnic lunch by the river. Can’t wait to bring our adult children back and to do it again. Highly recommended experience for all ages and types!

The highlight of our trip! Expensive but worth every cent! Carolina is a great communicator and thought of everything! Austin was a perfect guide. I was stung by a bee, and he sprang into action and removed the stinger before I even knew I’d been stung! We’ll do this again any time we are back in the area! A must-do!

Such a super fun experience! From start to finish Austin was very welcoming and energetic and definitely will be back again!!! The experience was very laid back and fun, he was super knowledgeable and really down for whatever we did or didn’t want to do! Thank you for a great experience. And cute little lunch as well!

ABSOLUTELY MAGICAL. Austin was hands down the best. He was friendly, accommodating, patient, laid back, and made the trip TOP NOTCH! We LOVED the cars, so much much than we anticipated! We are avid ATV riders & outdoor thrill seekers! We booked the trip wondering how the swincar would compare. We absolutely fell in love! My hubby wants to buy a set! So quiet, and comfy! We can’t get over how it handled on the trails! And why we haven’t heard of these before! Austin allowed us to choose our pace & even allowed us to choose our spot for the picnic! (We choose to have lunch with a view, above a field & gorgeous mountain) Request him yall, you won’t be sorry!!! Caroline made the booking experience simple & easy,,, going above & beyond in many ways, including accommodating my dietary restrictions to a “t”! Every single part deserves 5 stars!

Our guide, Austin, was amazing! We had so much fun!!! I didn’t know what to expect and it definitely exceeded my expectations! Will definitely be doing this again in the future! I didn’t realize we would be able to go so fast and Austin did a great job of letting us go as fast as we felt comfortable and he would have us stop to allow the other members of our group catch up and then go full speed. We got to do max speed for the swincar which is 20mph, which may not seem fast to some, but going up mountain terrain was perfect! Definitely a trip we won’t forget. Patrick & Caroline were great to work with. We had inclement weather expected on the day we scheduled and they were very accommodating to work with us to schedule us for a new time the next day! Thank you all so much! Great memory!
