WHITE WATER RAFTING EDINBURGH
|Get ready for a very wet, adrenalin-filled day. White water rafting Edinburgh is one of the very best rivers in Scotland. The Rivers we use are free flowing, and river levels can fluctuate dramatically over the season. Calm pools of water separate the rapids – perfect for getting your breath back and admiring the spectacular highland scenery before you tackle the next rapid. We pick the best river available for your big day to ensure that you have the very best rafting experience.
During the half-day rafting trip you will float about six miles in distance> we start around the old market town of Aberfeldy. Here the river winds lazily along the Tay valley, through rolling hills and stunning scenery. This is an area with a diverse wildlife, which is best seen from the river. The paddle crew has ample opportunity to practice their newly learnt rafting skills with a variety of fun and challenging games before the river drops away and creates challenging rapids that flow down to Grandtully.
Rapids such as ‘Zoom Flume‘ and ‘The Washing Machine‘ keep people on their toes, before the grand finale: ‘The Grandtully Rapid‘. This is the longest rapid on the river and provides one or two surprises for the unwary rafter!
High water usually from September to April provides the exhilaration of greater speed, bigger waves and challenging rafting. Lower flows during the summer months provide a more scenic and gentle introduction but require tight teamwork and more precise manoeuvring.
All our white water rafting trips include all equipment required plus a professional experienced guide per raft combined with a overall trip leader in charge of the trip. A logistics manager on land who is also a very experienced guide. All equipment required which includes over £150 worth of wetsuits, helmets, lifejackets and paddles.
