Full On Adventure, Aviemore, Cairngorm National Park

Mountain Biking

Based in Aviemore at the heart of the Cairngorms National Park, Full On Adventure has been guiding and coaching mountain bikers in the Scottish Highlands for 10 years.

We also ride extensively around the rest of Scotland and overseas.

We often tailor make riding holidays for groups and we also offer scheduled mtb holidays for individuals and groups to join.

Our Scottish MTB trips are

  • Coast to Coast by MTB
  • Cairngorms single track and big mountain rides

This is truly a wilderness adventure for the canoeist or kayaker. No previous experience of canoeing or kayaking is required for this trip as you’ll have expert guides. Choose to use touring kayaks or open canoes.

Mountain Biking Aviemore

Mountain Biking Adventure Day

Cairngorms Single Track

With loads of amazing wild locations around the Cairngorms we can give you a real diversity of riding if you’re with us mountain biking for a few days or a week. Have you ridden down through heather with no path? It’s like skiing, and with our new internal hub bikes you no longer need to worry about taking off the rear mech, so bring on the good times!

Most of the time we prefer to have single track and whether that is in the forest or the open mountains, it’s all good. We teach good riding techniques that leave the ground as we find it, respect the environment and over all take you to the places that we know will blow you away.

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

Orca Waters Explorer

Orca Waters Explorer – Overview

Located near the northern end of beautiful Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Johnstone Strait and surrounding areas are a sea kayaker’s dream. Separating Vancouver Island from the mainland archipelago, this narrow passage funnels the Pacific Ocean through its depths, creating an unparreled concentration of marine life. The very richness of the waters in this area results in an abundance of wildlife. The salmon annually migrate through these channels, and other wildlife follows. On our Orca Waters Explorer kayak tours trips we regularly see Orcas (killer whales), humpback whales, Minke whales, Stellar sea lions, harbour seals, bald eagles, black tailed deer, black bear and amazing bird life. This incredible ecosystem also supports an amazing array of inter-tidal life, best viewed from a kayak. Sea kayaking in the rich waters of Johnstone Strait is an experience to remember. This nomadic tour has everything; it starts in the protected waters of the Broughton Archipelago, where you’ll explore the many hidden waterways and discover ancient village sites where the Kwakwaka’wakw First Nations culture thrived. Onward to Johnstone Strait proper, where we’ll spend our time here traveling the main channels of Blackfish sound and Johnstone Strait. These waters are the most consistent for wildlife, and as we paddle we’ll keep our eyes on the horizon for the blows from orca, humpback, or Minke whales. With over 200 orcas in the northern resident population, our chances of spotting them are excellent.

But there is much more to this area than whales; from the snow-capped peaks of the coastal mountains, to the verdant rolling hills of Vancouver Island, bears strolling the shoreline, eagles fishing in front of our campsite, a campfire at dusk – these are the beautiful subtleties of the area. This is our classic tour, and its’ popularity speaks for itself.

Why does all the Snow in Aviemore make for sensational White Water Rafting?!

When stag and hen dos are deciding where to go for an adventure weekend,  it might be useful to know more about why Aviemore rates so highly as a White Water Raftinglocation. Read More…

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 gratually melted to give excellent rafting on the Findhorn river in spring sun shine.
