Kayaking in Aviemore & the Cairngorms

Kayaking in Aviemore & the Cairngorms – whatever ability you are, whether you have been in a boat before or not kayaking is fun for all. Our introduction to kayaking days start on flat water where you will learn the foundations to paddling the craft. This will then allow you to control your kayak and set out on a short journey, possibly down an easy stretch of river. These days are suitable for individuals, families, kids and groups.

Coaching & Qualifications

We offer coaching and developmental days for those with previous experience of kayaking.  This can be on flat water and or moving water for those looking to develop their skills further.  If you are looking to work towards the BCU star awards for personal paddling this is something we offer. We normally run these sessions on some of our local venues like the Spey and Loch Insh, but we can tailor these days to suit your ability and will go wherever is most appropriate for the weather and group. Please head to our courses and training for more info.
