At Activity Scotland, we also seek out the best stretches of river for every visitor, whether they have never rafted before or looking for their next challenge.

You can admire Perthshire at its best along the River Tay. Fortunately, this route has some calm sections as well as the action-packed river runs, so you can stop and marvel at the scenery and keep a look out for the wildlife too.
Practice your technique
River Tay white water rafting is perfect for those who want to learn more about the skill of white water rafting and practise your paddling. However, we should point out that some stretches are untameable no matter how good your paddling is!
For those who want to splash and frolic in the water without the stomach-churning rapids, then River Tay white water rafting is just the ticket for a fun-filled day out with friends and family. With all the necessary safety equipment provided, you can relax and get competitive with friends over a friendly water fight or two.
Believe it or not, you will actually want to paddle when the waves become more forceful. Paddling gives you an extra bracing point, making you feel more secure. The harder you paddle, the safer you will feel inside the raft. Not only does paddling help you to feel confident in the raft, but it will be a workout you will not even realise you are doing.
At Activity Scotland, we offer white water rafting on the River Tay. Is it time for your next big Scottish adventure?

Booked a 'stag do' through Karen at Activity Scotland. The location itself at Boreland was fantastic. Karen’s organisation was first class and all communication was prompt and accurate. I wouldn’t hesitate to book activities again via Activity Scotland- thanks Karen.
4 of us went canyoning today as a birthday celebration. It was fantastic! Highly recommend it! If all guides are as good as Andy then you're doing something right. Ally was amazing. Super friendly, funny and really knowledgeable. Made our morning. We're already planning our next outdoor adventure
We had a fantastic time thanks to the personal and professional help from Karen. The accommodation, recommended activities and guidance throughout our stay was all credit to a flawless service. We would highly recommend 10/10!
