Synchronized Lightning Bug Evening Trip. One of the most unique adventures in the WORLD!!!  This has become one of our most sought after custom program.  Enjoy the convenience of our guide service preparing all the logistics for a fabulous evening in the mountains.  As you get transported deep into a locally known area of the GSMNP, you will enjoy appetizers and snacks as your guide explains the natural event.  As we anticipate the darkness, one of the SMG staff will explain the significance of this phenomenon to our guest.  Finally, we travel a little further into the wilderness to our spot where the magic happens.  Want to see more? Check out this video of the lightning bugs in action or read about them here!  Please remember, this is a natural event and SMG has no control over the lightning bugs producing a show each evening.
