White Water Rafting River Orchy
White water rafting on the River Orchy - a full day trip covering ten miles of this river, featuring nine major Grade III, IV & V rapids
Situated in the heart of the Grampian mountains, in Argyle, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of city life, lies Glen Orchy. This is a tranquil little glen, dotted with a couple of farms surrounded by steep, rugged mountains. It contains a dark secret, for here lays the river Orchy. In the summer it is a gentle trickle, but add typical Scottish weather from October onwards and the trickle grows into a raging torrent!
This is rafting at it's best! A 'full-on' alpine style river that has no respect for anyone daring to travel along it's twisting path. We at Splash have pioneered regular descents, both in high water and normal flows, down what is regarded as the UK's best rafting river. We have probably ran more trips on the Orchy the all other companies put together. If you are looking for the most challenging, exciting and pure adrenaline buzzing whitewater then this is for you!
Run as a day trip we cover ten miles of this river, running through nine major grade 3, 4 and 5 or rapids . Anyone wishing to raft this river must be able to move at fairly short notice to take advantage of the best possible conditions. This is not a river for the faint of heart, raft if you dare!!
This trip is recommended for individuals and groups who have rafted before or are water sports and adventure enthusiasts.
Strictly 18 years plus. Please check suitability with our office before booking this trip!
