White Water Rafting and River Bugs
White Water Rafting and River Bugs White Water Rafting is one of the most exciting river activities in Scotland. Whitewater rafts are engineered to handle everything the river can throw at them. You and your team will work with one of our experienced guides to navigate the variety rapids and drops. The rapids come in a grade from 1 (flat, scenic) to 5 (high adventure/ risk). Your half-day rafting trip includes all equipment, transport on and off the river, experienced raft guides on each raft, a trip leader on each trip and an operations manager on dry land. We also include free professional photography with every trip so everyone goes away with lots of photos of their white water rafting adventure. River Bugs are 1-person rafts that look like giant inflatable armchairs and are perfect to those looking for a unique adventure experience on the River Tummel. Splash has pioneered River Bugging here in Scotland and as such we are the most experienced provider of this fun outdoor activity. On the day you'll receive expert instruction from our experienced river bug guides and we'll even provide you with your own webbed gloves. We'll also be on hand to help you negotiate your own path down the white water rapids.

World wandering nomad having annoyed the residents of over 100 countries. Started the adventure journey way back in the late 70’s when he started wandering across the Scottish mountains as a kid. The army provided a decade and a half of adventure and development before taking a 6-year journey as a corporate suit to learn about the World of business. Being a slow learner this should have only been a couple of years but Pete got lost. He eventually found the route back to full-time adventure in 2003 when the opportunity to take over the Rafting company came along. Since then our company has expanded not just in Scotland but around the World with operations in Spain, Morocco and Pete’s current passion, the Rafting company where he gets folk as crazy as him to take on extreme challenges to cross deserts, countries and rather large mountain ranges. Peter is the owner of the company.
