Full description
On this full-day tour you will enjoy an adventure of both white water rafting and the new sport of river bugging. You start of the day at 09:30 with a white water rafting trip. This trip takes place on the River Tay, with the exception of the weekends between June and September when it takes place on the River Tummel. Both the River Tay and River Tummel rafting trips are great tours with both fun and adrenaline assured. The River Tay is a grade 2/3 river and the River Tummel is a grade 3/4 river. The half-day River Tay rafting trip is about 6 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 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. In the afternoon you will try river bugging, the latest white water sport to hit the UK shores from New Zealand. Here you will sit in a 1-person raft similar to a giant inflatable armchair! River bugs are a great way to play on the river if you want that little bit more excitement, and are ideal for summer river levels as you don't have to wait for the rain to gain the thrills of the outdoors! After receiving expert instruction from the experienced river bug guides, you will get out on the river (complete with your webbed gloves) and negotiate your own path down the white water rapids with the help of the instructors.
