The Dell of Abernethy

The Dell of Abernethy sits on the edge of the Abernethy forest, 1 mile from the centre of Nethy Bridge, surrounded by river flat grazing and dwarfed by oak and horse chestnut.

Our six charming self-catering cottages and Georgian family house are set within safe secluded grounds, providing a peaceful escape and a great base for exploring the wilds of the Cairngorm National Park.

A labyrinth of forest tracks lead out from the doorstep of the Dell, ideal for wildlife spotting, mountain biking and cross country ski-ing. A 30-minute drive will take you to the top of the Cairngorms, into the heart of Rothiemurchus or up into the wild moor lands en route to the Moray coast beaches.

Creek Kayak in Washington state in November

So its that time of year when the Full On Adventure guides get to go on adventures.

We still answer enquiries by email but the phones are off until the spring so we all get to play and ensure we are at the cutting edge of adventure.

We are still open for group bookings in the winter but book ahead as we don’t do last minute in the winter as we are away on adventures.

Right now owner John Mason is creek kayaking in washington state, USA. Whilst the snow falls on the the mountains the north west coast of the states has a climate much like Scotlands in the auturm, plenty of rain means great kayaking.

Then when the snow comes in force it will be up to Canada for the back country skiing.

Here are some head cam videos from this weeks adventures

the following day the Robe Canyon of the R. Stilli

White Water Rafting from Aviemore, Inverness, Elgin and Aberdeen

All this snow we are having now will mean another great Spring of White Water Rafting here in Aviemore on the Findhorn River. Spring-early summer 2010 had consistently good river levels for White Water Rafting  and Full Adventure had lots of Spring Stag Dos who from our Aviemore base made the most of the large snow pack that gradually melted to give excellent rafting on the Findhorn river in spring sun shine.

March to June is a great time to book a White Water Rafting trip on the Findhorn and is always a popular time for Stag and Hen do rafting trips. John Mason Full On Adventure’s founder has been running Aviemore rafting trips on the Findhorn since 1997.  As the original company to run regular White Water Rafting trips on the Findhorn we have established ourselves as the specialists for high adventure all day white water rafting trips in Scotland. Our trips are unique from any other Rafting trips in the  Aviemore area and probably the UK as we run all day trips where you can take your time to Raft the best Rapids and also stop off from lunch along the way and enjoy a great BBQ afterwards.

A good winter season that’s a hit with the skiers, will mean a great Spring run off for White Water Rafting. For stag and Hen groups we can help you find a great base in Aviemore or Inverness for your weekends adventures, so book now to ensure avaibility for great White Water this Spring. We have had increasing numbers coming over to the Findhorn rafting with us, for the day from Aberdeenand Elgin, so if a wild way to wake upto summer appeals get in touch.

We offer free photos of your White Water Rafting trips and often take helmet camera videos as well, all included.

To keep you comfortable with have extra warm paddle jackets to go over our full steamer wetsuits, so all you need to do is prepare for the excitement of some stunning white water without worrying about being cold.

If the snow stays longer than expected, no worries, as we have some great skiing and snow boarding for you until it melts in the river for Rafting. For more details of our group combo adventures including White Water Rafting, Adventure River Tubing, Canyoning, Mountain Biking, Skiing, Snow Boarding, Kayak river trips and loads more contact us for the details.

To make your adventure weekend complete add a second or third activity like our brand new River Tubing or the Canyoning.
