White Water Rafting

White Water Rafting throughout Scotland

White Water Rafting in Scotland is one of our most popular water activities. Active Outdoor Pursuits provide rafting on Scotland’s best Rivers and offer you the widest choice of rivers. Our most popular rafting trips are the River Findhorn, River Garry and the River Spey. In Perthshire we raft on the River Tay and in South West Scotland we raft the river Doon & Nith.

Rafting is a great fun activity for everyone. Families and young people will love the bounce and splash offered on grade 2 river trips like the Spey, while adult groups such as stag and hen parties may go for the more exhilarating experience on the River Findhorn or River Garry.

White Water Rafting is an all year round activity however, conditions vary with the seasons. The conditions are generally pleasant in Summer with warmer temperatures, the higher water levels are normally during the Spring and Autumn. During the summer months, river levels can be low and heavy rainfall is required however, we should always be able to find a suitable river. The River Garry is dam controlled so will run most Thursdays and Saturdays throughout the summer. No previous experience is required, although there are variable age limits for each river.
