Aviemore rafting activity for families with young children

Family River Rafting

Family rafting is about fun on a gentle section of highland river. Where the river Spey runs through Aviemore it is gentle with lots of great mountain views and wildlife. This trip is for families with young children, it is fine for 5yrs+.

We paddle a fairly short section of river about 6 km, where the water and guide do most of the work, letting you enjoy the scenery, wildlife and have fun on the water,  paddling and playing games.

Scheduled trips run in school holidays on Sundays and Thursdays.

Trip times: 10am-1pm, or 2pm-5pm in summer. Half an hour earlier in winter.

That time span includes time for getting on and off the water and for transport, so the time on the water is up to 2 hours, which we have found is about right for young children.

We run this trip in partnership with Rothiemuchus estate.

Please book family rafting through the Rothiemurchus Visitor Centre: 01479 812345

If you have a group of 4 or more we can run it any day to suit you. If you wish to arrange a non scheduled trip contact us so we can put in the Rothiemurchus program prior to booking.

The family rafting trip is not white water so if you have older kids, 10yrs+ then you’ll probably be better to do our ‘fun rapids rafting’ or the ‘Full On’ White Water Rafting’.
