We did the canoe explorer tour with Stewart and had a really great time. He was informative and engaging, and we stopped at a beautiful hidden waterfall for a hot drink and a biscuit. Equipment was all in great shape, and we were lucky to have good weather. Would recommend!

Thanks to Matt our amazing and inspiring leader for our 5 days of canoeing from Inverness to Fort William down the lochs and canals. What a fantastic experience we had learning lots along the way, testing our strength in the canoes (especially when pushing against the wind and waves) and during the portages. Loved the wild camping - absolutely awesome locations with stunning views; you could not beat waking up to a view of a loch and hills. My friend Gill and I joined with some trepidation as to whether our ages (60yrs) would mean we would struggle with the challenge but WE DID IT!! Everyone in our group worked as a team despite not having met before and canoed through all weathers. Food was ample and we were amazed to be provided with three course evening meals of high quality given the locations. Both of us now planning next adventures! Thanks to all at In Your Element!

Totally brilliant! 10 friends just back from a 3 day canoe trip on the Spey with Mike as our guide. I had been recommended to In Your Element by a friend who had promised we would be well looked after and we certainly were! None of us had done a trip like this before so there were lots of questions before hand about transport, timings, kit, weather, camping locations (you name it, we had a question!) Brenda and Callum couldn't have been more knowledgeable and were always on hand to help.We took the Caledonian Sleeper and were met in Aviemore by Mike and some of his team who had all of the canoeing and camping kit required. The weekend could not have run more smoothly. The canoes and camping kit were all in excellent condition and Mike had planned the perfect itinerary given what we were looking for on our trip.Mike's guidance and regular briefings about the river and rapids were reassuring and made for a really fun experience on the water. The wild camping was a real highlight as it was such a beautiful spot on an island in the river with space for a great evening around the camp fire.We will be booking another trip with IYE soon. 🙂

We had a fantastic hours archery tuition with the added bonus of there just being me and my wife. The instructor Kyle was great. Patient, knowledgeable, friendly and genuinely interested in us. By the end of the session we'd both improved. Brilliant fun. This was at Loch Long in the grounds of Forest Holidays.
