River Kayaking

JOURNEY DOWN THE RIVER SPEY WITH US

Use touring kayaks specially designed to be stable, comfortable and easy to paddle.

Description

Journey down the river Spey with us, using touring kayaks specially designed to be stable, comfortable and easy to paddle. The experience is guided by expert kayak guides who will teach you skills and guide you safely on this amazing way to see the Cairngorms National park from a comfortable kayak seat.

You can paddle fast or chill and take it slow, taking in the abundant wildlife of the river. These kayaks also have ‘skegs’ which you can move up and down, so that controlling your direction is easy. The large cockpits make getting in and out easy and so taking snack stops along the way on sandy beaches or grassy banks is all part of the journey.
