World Travelers Package

Many of the guests to Fire Mountain come from all parts of the world to experience the beauty of one of the most visited areas in the United States, The Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Most guests come to know that everything that you could possibly desire to do in the mountains of western North Carolina is located close to each other “as the crow flies” but that getting there takes a little while because of the winding two lane mountain roads.

Therefore world travelers look for a central location to use as a base while visiting the area. The Southern Highlands is located right in the middle of everything that one could want to experience when coming to The Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the mountains of western North Carolina.

Fire Mountain is located in the very middle making it close to everything.

Therefore we are a preferred location and base for many guests from outside of the United States. As a result we have developed a “special package” for our foreign guests since they stay for extended periods which enables them to explore and participate in all of the activities offered in the Southern Highlands here in the mountains of western North Carolina in the Unites States of America.

Five nights, six days affords a 10% reduction in tariff

Seven nights, eight days affords a 15% reduction in tariff
