River Tay white water rafting trips are a great way to experience the thrills of rafting on the famous River Tay with Splash! Starting from our base in Aberfeldy, your half-day rafting trip includes all equipment, transport on and off the river, experienced raft guides on each raft, a trip leader on each trip and an operations manager on dry land. We also include free professional photography with every trip so everyone goes away with lots of photos of their white water rafting adventure.
The river has numerous rapids between Grades 2 and 3 that are fun, bouncy and challenging. The half-day River Tay rafting trip is about six miles in distance, and starts from 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 learned rafting skills with a variety of fun and challenging games before the river drops away and creates challenging rapids that flow down to Grandtully.
The River Tummel is like no other in Scotland. The rafting experience will get you working together with our guide. You need to guide the raft from the beautiful deep pools, down through technical rapids such as ‘Zig-Zag’ and ‘Sharks Tooth’.
The main part of the trip is Grade II/III. This prepares you for the final ‘piece de la resistance’: a two-tier, 18-foot drop (Grade IV) rapid. This drops into the mystical Loch Faskally where we float away from the falls towards home reflecting on the power and beauty of the river.
– You and your team will work with one of our experienced guides to navigate the raging rapids
– Access to many rivers from the fun and bouncy Tay to the fast and furious Tummel.
