Canoeing on The River Spey

Join us for an idyllic and gentle paddle on the picturesque River Spey. With the beautiful Cairngorm peaks as your backdrop, paddle this majestic river with your family or friends in stable Canadian canoes. Your guide will show you how to maneuver your boats before you head off to enjoy a guided tour, spotting wildlife and relaxing in the beautiful natural surroundings as you go.

Suitable for ages 7+ years, you’ll be provided with all the kit you need for a safe and enjoyable paddling experience. Once we’ve reached our destination by boat, you’ll be picked up and brought back to base.
