White Water Rafting


The ultimate high excitement, white water rafting trip. We use the Findhorn, a big exciting Scottish river with loads of awesome grade 3-4+ rapids. Depending on the section we raft the grades will differ, most half day trips are fun and still exciting grade 3

Water levels on the Findhorn are rain and snowmelt dependent so there are many times of the year when levels are too low for rafting. 
If this is the case while you are visiting Aviemore, we will take you on the equally awesome and exciting Adventure White Water River Tubing which is good whatever the water level, other than times of exceptional rain in which case we will be rafting.  Levels vary daily and often we do not know until the start of your session as it’s very hard to predict.
Due to the fact that we have neither Glaciers or Dams on the rivers we raft here in Scotland, it is extremely hard to know prevailing levels far in advance and as such we will not be able to let you know which activity it is until your arrival. But don’t worry as White Water River tubing is even more awesome anyway!
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.

White Water Rafting in the Scottish Highlands from our Aviemore base. We use the River Findhorn and occasionally the River Feshie if there’s been lots of rain. We also run mellow trips for 5yrs and up on the River Spey as family rafting scenic float trips.

Choose the best adventure for the river levels and time of year.

The River Feshie in the Cairngorms National Park (a favourite of white water kayakers) and most of the time better for White Water Tubing than White Water Rafting, we only raft it if too high to tube. The River Feshie is a ten minute drive from our Aviemore changing rooms. White Water Tubing is even more exciting than White Water Rafting and the same type of activity.

Raft the Findhorn

Each November, and from late March to mid May, the River Findhorn has the UK’s best white water for rafting. During the summer we normally recommend Adventure Water River Tubing as an alternative. In Scotland we dont have glaciers to keep the rivers up for rafting in July and August. Occasionally we have exceptionally wet periods in july and august and then the rafting back on. July 2023 is a good example of that, so far we’ve been rafting all last week as everything else has been washed out. This is the first year in the last 10 years that we’ve had high river levels on findhorn in July, so quiet the exception, get it whilst its good.
