Description

This trip is for families with young children (5yrs+).

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.

We paddle a fairly short section of river and let the water and guide do most of the work while 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.

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 please contact us so we can make arrangements.

    Brilliant family fun, no experience necessary, water tubing and paddle boarding. Our guides Joe and Chris were fab, did things I never thought I would, would do it all again in a heartbeat. Thanks for a fantastic day.

    My 8 yr old loved it. She had a ball - great conditions, lovely white water and fun all the way. Such a fantastic way to spend a holiday morning. We'll be back to do it again, for sure.

    I loved it. We were lucky to go on a sunny warm day, the water was a good temperature. The scenery was beautiful. The instruction was good, it was a nice easy float down the river with a few rapid thrills and a couple of rock jumps too. Brilliant couple of hours.

    Went river tubing with some friends. It was amazing ! We had everything explained to us and weren't pressured into anything we didn't feel comfortable with. This was one of the best activities I have ever done hopefully will return soon !

    Fabulous morning on the river White Water tubing with Joe. Our daughter Caitlin, aged 8, was able to do all the course- some of it being towed by Joe, so therefore did not miss out on any adrenaline fuelled fun. She particularly liked the jumping into deep pools. My son, 17 and my husband and I had our fair share of tumbles and laughs (at each other especially). We were guided expertly to safety by Joe. Well worth the money and an extremely enjoyable and exciting family morning on the river. Fab photos to laugh at even more!

    Brilliant fun for all the family especially those with daredevil kids. My son loved it and his parents are nursing sore bodies but 100% worth it. Andy was a top guide too and brilliant with kids. Highly recommended.

    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!
