Canoeing the River Spey River Beauly Great Glen Canoe Trail Canoeing on Lochan Eilein
  Single day Multi-day
2-person canoes £45 £37 per day
However, if you hire for 5 days we'll only charge you for 4 (or 6 for 5, etc).
 
The hire cost includes:
- paddles [with spares]
- buoyancy aids (or life jackets for small children)
- helmets [if required]
- a 60 litre watertight barrel per person or equivalent sized dry bag. 
- a portage trolley for every 2 boats hired
- a water bailer
- Laminated map
- Free toilet trowel and firepan (on request)
- 5m security cable (free on request)
- All our canoes come fitted with buoyancy airbags and painter ropes - something you should always look for when hiring canoes, for safety reasons.
 
Our canoes are predominantly 16ft Venture Rangers, ideal for multi-day trips on flat or moving water.  The canoes come with 2 fitted seats and although they have sufficient room for a third adult or a couple of small children kneeling in the middle, you must bear in mind that along with expedition kit the boat may sit low in the water and put you at risk of being swamped.  We also have a small number of smaller boats which can be paddled solo if necessary.
