£50pp | 10am meet | 2-3 hours of paddling time | Finished by 2pm. 

These will be on the River Dee (however can also be done on the River Don or Spey) Specific location will be dependant on the group experience and the river levels. Sections could include anywhere between Invercauld Bridge (Braemar) and Potarch Bridge.

 

Spaces are limited for all of the above to 4 people - we like to keep numbers low so we can focus on specific coaching requirements for each individual.

All equipment is provided, however people are welcome to use their own equipment. We have a wide range of specific river boards for you to try.  

 

Please note that these sessions are not designed for beginners. Some basic experience is required. Participants need to be able to paddle efficiently on both sides, able to turn the board effectively and ability to self rescue.
