We don't want you to worry that you'll miss your first day of paddling or be too tired to paddle after a long drive up to Scotland so we have a day where you can arrive at any point during the day and when you arrive the kettle will be boiled and cake ready to eat as you chat to your guide, sort out your kit and get settled in.

4 days open canoeing down the river Spey in Scotland with 3 nights of wild camping as we make our journey from Aviemore to Spey Bay. This 60 mile long wilderness canoe journey through the stunning Scottish highlands will take your breathe away at every turn especially as we run this trip at the start of autumn when all the leaves are turning colour. 

 

You will be guided down by Joshua Telling, who will be able to teach you all the skills you need and more to get you safely down the river and for you to leave the trip with new skills to develop. 

 

Each night on the river we will be camping, with fires to keep us warm and entertained through the night.

We do the same for your departure. You enjoy your last day of paddling and a good meal on the Thursday before settling down in your comfy bed to re-energise prior to your journey home the next day.

 

What will I need to bring?

You don't have to go out and buy the most expensive and latest camping or paddling gear to enjoy this journey. We will send you a full kit list when you sign up to the trip but here is a short over view of what you will need: warm clothes to wear on and off the river, dry bag, waterproofs, basic camping gear. If you have paddling gear like buoyancy aid, helmet, paddles or boat please feel free to bring them along with you. If you don't have any of this kit but want to attend this trip please let us know by emailing us before booking on. 

As with all our adventures we offer this as self catering, this allows the flexibility to cook communally, individually or head to the pub. 


Price includes:
- Bunkhouse accommodation on arrival day and last day of paddling before departure day.
- 4 days coaching and guiding.
- Photos and Videos from the trip.

Price doesn’t include:
- Food and Drink - Self Catered
- Transport to Scotland.
- Kit Hire (paddling kit or camping kit).

You can either go solo or tandem but should be and comfortable paddling grade 2 and long distances.

On the river we will be camping each night and at this time of year it can be cold in the evenings so warm clothes will be needed but there will always be a fire and hot drinks to warm yourself up!
