Typically available June, July and August.

Our flat water canoe tours take place on Loch an Eilein near Aviemore, a truly magical place right at the heart of the ancient Rothiemurchus Pine forest.  If you haven’t been on a canoe trip before don’t worry, our friendly experienced staff will show you how to handle your canoe, giving you the confidence to enjoy this exciting sport.

The canoes are light, stable and carry two adults, or two adults plus two small children.  Loch an Eilein is very sheltered and is the perfect place to relax, explore some wonderful highland scenery and to chat with your guide and new found friends.

Look out for the local wildlife, canoe around the ruined castle and hear tales of Jacobite plots and the notorious Wolf of Badenoch.  Loch an Eilein canoe tours will consist of a safety briefing, teaching some basic canoeing skills, a couple of fun games for all ages and then a gentle explore of the Loch and its amazing history.

For individuals and small groups, scheduled sessions are available to book here online during the season.  Private group bookings are also available and can be quoted on request at other times (subject to a minimum booking fee of £300).  Call 0333 600 6008 or get in touch for more information or to book – group bookings cannot be booked online.
