Water Adventures ... Journeys with a difference!

River Journeys
Are you looking for a unique experience that provides personal challenge in a stunning setting?A slow and relaxing voyage absorbing views and watching wildlife? or a full throttle, adrenaline pumping white water ride, tackling rapids and working hard to become a proficient paddler capable of looking after others?

You can travel by kayak or open canoe for either single or multi-day expeditions. Overnights can either be spent at Lagganlia or at river bank camp spots. Options may be dependent on rainfall and water levels in the area you wish to visit. We can also provide training and assessment for British Canoe Union coaching awards, skills certificates etc

Picture this: You are skippering your own boat on idyllic Loch Morlich with the Cairngorm Mountains towering above you. You experience a mixture of calm and tranquillity followed by bursts of wind spiralling down from the mountains, your adrenalin is racing, to decide to pull the sail in tight and speed down the length of the loch!

At Lagganlia we have a variety of boat for all ability/ age groups: Optimist dinghies for smaller children, Laser Picos for two children or one adult and Laser Stratos that can take up to 4 people including an instructor.
