Starting off in the Cairngorms National Park we start the classic canoe descent of the river Spey, paddling all the way to the North Sea! Along the way we develop your paddling skills and knowledge to maximise your enjoyment on this wonderful classic canoe journey. We also have various options from wild camping to staying in B&B's with cooked breakfast and dinner every night. There are also options to check out some of the local Speyside whisky distilleries along the way if people are keen to sample some of the local tipple!
