WHITE WATER KAYAK TRIPS & GUIDING

SCOTLAND WHITEWATER GUIDING

Whether it's your first time boating in Scotland or perhaps you've just scratched the surface of some of the best whitewater kayaking in the UK, and wish to see more - we can provide the experience for you.  Our local guides are experienced, knowledgable, highly qualified and know both the classics and the hidden gems intimately.  Dam releases in the summer months mean whitewater paddling is much more reliable, and the spring snowmelt and common heavy rains of the autumn make Scotland an excellent whitewater kayak destination.  We can also put you in touch with excellent accommodation options just short drives from the river.

Whether you are looking to explore the countless intermediate runs, such as the Middle Spean, Lower Roy, Spey, Tay, Ness, Garry and Middle Findhorn or take on the steeper runs of the Orchy, Etive, Roy Gorge, Gloy, Tilt and Moriston - we can take you there.  Join us for a weekend, 5 days or longer - contact us now to put together your adventure.

This trip can take a guiding or coaching flavour, or a blend of both!

SPANISH PYRENEES - the Noguera Pallaresa

Fine wine and delicious tapas, stunning mountain scenery, friendly Catalan people, and best of all - 50km of guaranteed dam release whitewater from Grade 2 to 4+ - some of the finest Europe has to offer.  The Noguera Pallaresa and the historic town of Sort is a whitewater paddling Mecca, and we are offering a 7 day coaching package.  This is ideal for the Grade 3 boater looking to progress on to styling Grade 4 in the future.  Top quality tuition from experienced and highly qualified coaches will give you the technical and tactical skills to approach bigger whitewater with excitement rather than shaking legs and a dry mouth - all in the Spanish sun!  We shall dial those modern and dynamic whitewater moves over the week with individualised coaching, leaving you hungry for more when you get back home.

You arrange your own accommodation, but we shall be staying at the excellent campsite in Sort itself, with bar and pool on site, and will let you know how to book this.  If camping is not your thing though, there are plenty of other accommodation options.  Sort has a great selection of bars and restaurants for eating out, if you don't fancy cooking yourself.

SOUTHERN FRENCH ALPS

The Ecrins region of the French Alps has been attracting white water paddlers for decades - and with the fine food and drink, towering Alpine peaks, breathtaking scenery and sublime white water, it is easy to see why.  This 7 day trip is ideal for the Grade 3-4 boater who is looking experience the best of what this region has to offer, whilst developing their Alpine river running skills.  

Basing ourselves in the town of L'Argentière-la-Bessée, in the heart of the Ecrins region, close to the town of Briançon - this gives a prime location to explore the superb Alpine runs of the region - from the nearby Durance, Gyronde, Onde, Gyr, Guisane, Romanche and Clarée - to the steeper big volume runs of the Ubaye and Guil valleys.  A slalom course at our campsite also means quality white water to train on is just a short walk away!  With runs of Grade 2 to Grade 4+ to choose from, with the summer glacial melt keeping things topped up, this area is one of Europe's finest.

Top quality tuition from experienced and highly qualified coaches will give you the technical and tactical skills to approach bigger whitewater with excitement rather than shaking legs and a dry mouth - all in the Alpine sun!  We shall dial those modern and dynamic whitewater moves over the week with individualised coaching, leaving you hungry for more when you jet back home.

You arrange your own accommodation, but we shall likely stay at one of the many fantastic campsites close to L'Argentière-la-Bessée, most of which have bar and restaurant on site.  If camping is not for you though, there are plenty of other accommodation options in the area.  The town also has a good selection of places to eat should you not fancy cooking for youself one evening.
