The best year-round whitewater rafting in the UK. Our most popular and best-value activity.
Up to Grade 4/5 white water rafting with cliff jumping included for those with a head for heights!
The River Findhorn offers the best white water rafting in Scotland and the UK, being the only rafting trip in the UK above Grade 3 that runs all year.
Ideal conditions are usually spring and autumn and after rainfall, making this world-class rafting.
ACE is the only company to run the challenging Lower Gorge. Tip: Competitors in Aviemore offer a full-day rafting trip which is either our half-day trip or on the Spey.

- Purpose-built activity base with reception and ample parking
- Quality equipment and warm, clean wetsuit so you don’t get cold
- Friendly booking staff who can assist in your visit to the area from accommodation to transport

- Footwear such as old trainers that will get wet and are suitable for walking on uneven ground
Note: We supply wetsuit booties if needed.
This is the benchmark rafting trip in the UK because of the level of rapids, combined scenery and duration of the experience.
Sadly competitors present a full day rafting experience from Aviemore which is either delivered on the Spey, a river better suited for canoeing and is a stretch to call it white water rafting or on the Middle section of the river Findhorn which is what ACE offer as a lower price half day family rafting trip.
Located near Inverness and Aviemore in the Scottish Highlands, the River Findhorn begins in the Monadhliath Mountains and flows northeast to Findhorn Bay, eventually joining the sea in the Moray Firth. It is an amazing river that has featured in films, TV shows, as well as numerous books and is special for a number of key reasons:
It’s one of the last main rivers untouched by man and offers the best white water rafting adventure experience in the UK for both unparalleled scenery and exciting white water.
Fed by around 346 square miles of catchment, it is one of the fastest flowing rivers in Scotland, with four suitable sections of the river that we run on a regular basis, depending on river levels on the day.
The variation of breath-taking natural landscape makes it unique within the UK. This adventure flows through native Scottish woodland, traditional highland farmland, local game estates, dramatic towering gorges and ancient red-sandstone cliffs.
An abundance of local flora and fauna is maintained by conservation charities and local landowners. Whilst on this adventure, people have been lucky to spot: red and roe deer, ospreys, other birds of prey, salmon, otter, red squirrels, grouse, pine marten, extensive bird life, voles, stoats and more.
A typical day involves;
Upon arrival, you will be welcomed by a member of the ACE team who will sign you in at reception and explain the coming events of the day.
Quality wet suits and protective equipment will be issued to you, which can be changed into, in the changing rooms.
You can be safe in the knowledge you’re getting the best experience available given the conditions.
After boarding a bus it’s a short journey to the starting point or “put in” where you will be given a safety brief by one of our highly trained and experienced guides.
You get to practice on the water before starting out on some minor rapids. In most cases, the adventure will soon pick up pace as you navigate through “Randolph’s Leap” into the spectacular Lower Findhorn Gorge. After all these years, we don’t understand why ACE is the only company that rafts this section of the river. It is a world-class rafting experience and the best part of the whole river.
At this point, you will be tackling many rapids, waterfalls and white water features separated by calm sections of water that will allow you to take a rest and enjoy the scenery.
A short break in the middle of the adventure will allow you to grab a snack and take part in a cliff jumping session –with jumps up to 30 feet.
Any of the larger rapids can be easily walked by those that would like to come along on a trip but are concerned about running the rapids, which enables everyone the opportunity to experience the stunning lower Findhorn gorge.
The section that you will raft and the size and type of craft used will depend on the water level and circumstances of the day. Regardless of the conditions, the duration will be the same and we will provide the best possible experience on the day.
We collect you in our bus after a short walk up from the river and take you back to the ACE base, where you can relive each moment from the comfort of our reception as you watch the photos of the day. Take advantage of our selection of hot and cold drinks and snacks. Our knowledgeable local staff will be on hand to answer any of your questions and give helpful advice about the local area.
Photos are available online, and the originals can be purchased.
