The Cairngorms National Park has it all.  Towering mountains, native forests, lochs and rivers.  It also has the mighty River Spey flowing through it all the way to Spey Bay on the coast.

We can organise and guide a canoe journey for your group, whether that’s on a gentle, meandering stretch of the river, perhaps something a little more interesting that includes a small rapid or 2, or even a full-on whitewater canoeing experience.

On this journey you start off in the heart of Speyside whisky country, and after a bit of coaching on the water, to familiarise yourselves with the canoes, it’s off you go.  It won’t be long before you encounter the first of many rapids that day, with both Grade 1 and Grade 2 water to test your canoeing skills.  Rapids such as ‘The Washing Machine’ are waitng for you!

You’ll have time to eat your picnic lunch on the banks of the river with some hot drinks that we will provide, before arriving your end point for the day.  This offers a very exciting day out for thrill-seekers.

You will need your own means of transport for this tour and may be required to help with shuttles between start and finish points.
