Enjoy the view while your raft floats down our gentle stream on our family rafting trips.

Please note there is a 4 person minimum for any session. If you book for fewer people, or other customers have not also booked, we may have to cancel your booking or offer you an alternative activity. You can always call to check before you book.
Available to book from April 2018
If the session you’d like is showing as fully booked, or if you’re organising a group of more than ten people, please just get in touch so we can accommodate you.

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.

    Fantastic afternoon spent Gorge walking with Mike from Full On Adventure. Our two boys age 9 and 10, had the best time. Swimming, jumping and climbing our way up a pooled river. We didn’t want to leave. Great fun!

    We spent a great afternoon gorge walking with our guides Mike & Joe. They knew the river like the back of their hands & took us to some amazing plunge pools & white water. It was a great experience for the whole family, they provided all the kit we needed & we would highly recommend. 😀😀

    Great morning with Mike. Their were four of us in our party, the other three live in the water. We had a fab time all of us. The photos they took along the way was an unexpected but great surprise. Equipment provided was great and kept us all warm in the water. Mike was a fab and reassuring instructor. Thanks

    Great activity to do whilst in Aviemore! My son and I loved the whole experience. Thank you Mike for being our enthusiastic river tubing guide. Wearing the wetsuits made us feel warm in the very refreshing water! The river was so fun to drift down and the rapids were great fun!

    We had a brilliant afternoon gorge walking. They added in an extra slot to accommodate us with just a couple of days notice. Our kids loved it and took part in all the jumps and challenges. I'm sure we will be back.

    River Tubing!! Mike took us out, nothing was rushed, it was all very safe and great fun. The wetsuits keep you nice and warm and the location is stunning. Just trust in your kit, the advice given and it is enjoyable for all abilities.

    Had a session with my 8 year old non swimming daughter this morning, with Mike, and had a blast. You can be as brave as you dare or have a more chill time if you want and we felt safe and assured at all times. Mike was great and very encouraging which helped the wee ones confidence and she left feeling very proud of herself. Would highly recommend and don't let not being able to swim put you off 🙂

    River tubing was ideal for our family of four, with children 9 and 11. A perfect blend of thrills and beautiful surroundings, with careful supervision from Mike. Thanks for a great day out!

    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.

    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!
