Gift Voucher - Early Morning Canoe Safari
- Location: Inverness, Highland
After a basic introduction to steering the canoes we will proceed in
silence down the River Beauly on a short but stunning journey to
experience river life at sunrise.
On our previous trips we have
been lucky enough to see families of Roe Deer drinking at the edge of
the river, watched Peregrine Falcon fledglings stumble along a rock
ledge, watched otters playing in the gorge, badgers foraging and ospreys
catching fish and taking them back to their riverside nest to feed
Obviously no sightings can ever be guaranteed, but
even without the wildlife this is one of the very best short canoe
journeys in the country.
Minimum age 12. Minimum of 4 people required for this trip to run
- should we fail to confirm this number of bookings we reserve the
right to cancel the session and offer money back or alternative date.
at the car park for the Aigas Fish Ladder on the A831 Beauly to Cannich
road (3 miles west of the junction with the A862, 500m beyond the
signed entrance to Aigas Dam when driving towards Cannich). We will
leave one or two cars here and proceed up the glen to the start point.
(We'll also send a map for additional information and contact details
for your guide on the day once booked).
Finish Point: As above.
Times: Meeting time depends on time of sunrise.
Participants should take: Warm waterproof jacket, binoculars if you have them and a towel and change of clothes just in case!
A light breakfast is included.
Please note that you have to be prepared to get up very early in the morning in order to be on the water prior to sunrise (that's all part of the fun though!)
