Scotland has the perfect landscape for adventurous day out canyoning and Active has venues across the country although our main ones are around Aviemore. This is an activity that has become one of the UKs most popular extreme sports. The reasons for this are obvious – if you are not sure then come and try for yourself – we guarantee you will be hooked!

What is Canyoning?

Canyoning involves launching yourself off cliffs into deep pools. Sliding down naturally formed rock flumes and abseiling down waterfalls and deep gorges.

Time to get wet! You may get cold! One of the most amazing adventures of your life is to canyon! Guided by our expert instructors you are taken to the limit with this exhilarating sport.

Following on, there are a number of fun jumps, slides and areas to scramble up. Close to Glasgow, Stirling & Loch Lomond.

The canyons we use in Aviemore & Scotland have been carved from the rock over millions of years. Featuring naturally formed slides & chutes, jumps up to 40ft, abseils and natural rock arches to negotiate – This is a challenging experience providing a truly adventurous day out in Scotland.
