The Great Glen Canoe Trail

The Great Glen canoe trail has to be one of the finest paddling journeys the UK has to offer. Come along and join us for an adventure of a lifetime on a 5 day canoe trip from coast to coast in Scotland.

We will be guiding a small group 60 miles from the West coast to the East coast of Scotland on this exhilarating  canoe expedition. Our journey will begin in Fort William in the West and end in Inverness in the East. On route we will pass through Loch Lochy, Loch Oich  and Loch Ness. When we are not on the Lochs we will be paddling on the scenic man made canals. Each night we will be wild camping near the waterside, cooking on open fires and relaxing under the stars.  The scenery in this area is stunning and there will be a vast array of wildlife to keep an eye out for whilst on our journey.

As the adventure progresses we will teach you the following:

This is a physical journey and a reasonable level of fitness will be required to participate and complete this expedition. Our 3 day canoe trip on the river Tamar is a perfect trip to do before committing to this one as it will provide all the relevant pre-training and gain you experience of canoe journeying
