Skye has many beautiful rivers and canyons and is a truly unique place to experience canyoning. Pull on one of our cosy 5mm wetsuits and allow us to take you on an adventure you'll never forget - You won't be able to wash away your grin. We like to tailor our sessions to make sure everyone has a day out to remember, but a desire to abseil and a basic level of fitness is a good pre-requisite for a truly exciting canyoning session.
The river is immediately engrossing: abseiling through cascading waterfalls, sliding down polished chutes, clambering and exploring the depths of the secluded canyon. Walking in to Coire Mhadaidh is spectacular in itself: the lush green valley in stark contrast to the black sawtooth ridges surrounding you. It is made all the more special by an aquamarine river which meanders alongside the path. Waterfalls run into perfect swimming pools, and the gorge slowly deepens as the trail rises, offering a tantalising glimpse through birch leaves into the depths.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
We will usually meet at 9am in Portree and travel to our Canyon for the day from there. You need to bring a towel, swimwear and a sense of adventure! We are all fully qualified and fully insured, our guides have experienced the gorges and canyons at all times of year and all water levels. Journeys are usually downhill, so we start the session by walking up to the get-in point before following the water back to the start.
5 hour session, available May to October.
2-3 people £65 each
