Canyoning

From: £85

Canyoning is a really fun activity. Big jumps in to natural pools, swim under waterfalls, and cascade down bedrock slides. If no availability is showing, we might still be able to take you, just get in contact to see if we can run a session for you. 

Description

Canyoning is a must do adrenaline sport; fresh mountain water splashing in your face as you take on huge jumps into natural rock pools, swim under waterfalls and cascading down natural rock slides.

What is canyoning?

The original, real-deal, extreme, water and rock adventure. Our Canyon has Mega natural water slides, big pool jumps (all optional with ways around if you wish) and fantastic waterfalls.

Ideal for adventure seeking adults and older teenagers but can be suitable for water confident younger folks, just ask us when booking.

Why Canyoning from Aviemore?

We started Canyoning 20 years ago as a low water alternative to our White Water Rafting when the rivers were too low for that activity. As an experienced white water creek kayaker, our founder John Mason discovered many of the most popular Canyoning venues, in Scotland, whilst looking for new rivers to kayak. Often if a river was no good for steep creek kayaking, it ended up good for Canyoning. To this day our staff love Canyoning, it is often their goto on days off. We also now have other alternative to Rafting or Canyoning which is our awesome hybrid activity called White Water River Tubing. The closest great Canyon,  is a 45minute drive west from Aviemore. So if you’d like an activity closer to Aviemore which is every bit as exciting as Canyoning, then i’d recommend White Water River Tubing for sure.

    Not Full On. More like Foul Moneygrabbers. 5 friends and I booked with Full On for White Water Rafting today. We arrived 15 minutes late having told them we would be and they had left. It cost £330 and they didn't even call us to say "we're off". So we called them from their deserted office. They said they would only have been able to do single doughnut rides anyway. We are all 45-65 years old and would never have done doughnuts down the river anyway. We refused doughnut rides that afternoon. We asked for a partial refund. They refused any refund. John Mason the boss referred to his terms. Before you book with these people read the terms! No refunds. They can change what they like. Customer service does not exist at Full On.

    Excellent, friendly staff and brilliant activities. We went as a large family group of all ages and abilities (well, 14-65) and they organised an extra season for us. A brilliant afternoon!
