White Water River Tubing, is totally awesome.
Descend through the white water gorges. The White Water River Tubing is located only 10minutes from our Aviemore changing room. Using specially designed White Water River Tubes. Hang on tight to avoid flipping, though you might want to try flipping for fun!
What is White Water River Tubing?
White Water River Tubing is best described as a cross between White Water Rafting and Canyoning. Now our most popular activity, everyone loves White Water Tubing. Natural water slides, fast white water gorges, jumping into deep and safe plunge pools.
The ultimate group white water adventure activity, river tubing is closer to the action than white water rafting. Sit back and bounce down the rapids, or take a bit more control to hit the best routes.
White Water River Tubing is raved about by our customers on trip advisor, from adventure seeking families, stag and hen dos, company team building events to adventure travel tourists from around the world.
Adventure White Water River Tubing is the thing you’ll be talking about for years to come. People often tell us it was the highlight of their trip to Scotland. It all happens here in the beautiful Cairngorms National Park, close to our heated Aviemore changing rooms.
For families with younger kids under 12 who still want white water excitement, check out or regular River Tubing.
Strictly for adventure seeking groups of adults or those special families who are ready for adventure!
Dates not showing as available when you want to come?
Don’t worry it is probably still available, we dont put all the dates on our online booking system, we quite often organise stuff to run to suit your own dates, so just enquire using that enquire button next to the booking button. Or drop us an email or call.
Is Adventure White Water River Tubing available all year?
It is best from April until end Oct. We have sessions on every day throughout the peak summer period but booking well ahead is recommended to ensure availability for you on this super popular activity.
We only take adult groups Nov-March (apart from by special arrangement) and believe it or not quite a few people have come when it is colder and even when there is snow on the ground and with all our thick high quality gear have still enjoyed the activity. April,May and Oct, Nov can be warm or cold, it changes every year and we reserve the option of changing booked sessions to WW Rafting if too cold or levels too high inorder to still take you out on a great activity if not suitable for tubing. Dec-March it might be fine but we often change to XC skiing or other snow sports or to White Water Rafting where you are out of the water more of the time. The great thing about FOA is our guides are multi-qualified and experienced enough to swap to alternative activities if the weather isn’t good for the session your group booked. We always reserve the right to swap activities to something which is safe for the prevailing conditions as determined by us, as we have the experience needed to make that call.
We do have the best rivers in Scotland for River tubing and White Water Adventure Tubing.
Whats the difference between Adventure Tubing and River Tubing?
It’s the same venues we just take it at a slower pace on the ‘river tubing’ activity to allow for younger children and adults wanting a easier experience. Take your time walking up to the top of the river, always have easier options for bits that look too exciting for you, although generally that’s not the kids who want the easier option. Both activities have the option to included at no extra cost pool jumping but obviously on the easier version there are some nice easy step off jumps that are not scary and easy for first timers. But if you want to do cliff jumping from higher you still can on the river tubing activity. Note we only use safe cliff and pool jumps that have been checked carefully to ensure they are deep and safe to jump into and we only do it with the best safety equipment on.
‘Adventure River Tubing’ is our maximum White Water and high excitment version of the activity, more exciting than White Water Rafting and although completely unique it could be described as a cross between Canyoning and WW Rafting. Aimed at Adults or adventurous families (12yrs+) we walk up to the top of the Rapids quickly and get on with an amazing White Water high excitment activity, you can repeat the best bits and so you’ll run the rapids more times than on our easier version of this activity. The adventure tubing takes place in the afternoon to allow it to run longer giving you approximately 30mins extra at the venue, but note whilst every session is excellent in terms of fun, the time taken can vary based on water levels and other group factors.
There is a price difference of £10pp between River Tubing and Adventure River Tubing.
