Kayak tasters and fun paddling experiences at Cairngorms Activities

Kayaking in the Cairngorms

Always fancied giving kayaking a go? Our purpose-built pond offers the perfect safe place to try kayaking for the first time, improve on your existing skills, or simply have fun on the water.

Whether you’re looking to try something new, enjoy time with family or friends, or looking for a group activity with fun at the heart of it, our kayaking is perfect for a dabble with a paddle.

We’ll kit you up with buoyancy aid, helmet, and paddle, and teach you how to maneuver your kayak. Once you’re comfortable we’ll have some fun with games and challenges to hone those skills. At the end of your session, everyone will get the opportunity for an exciting finale with a slide down the seal launch.
