Canoeing Trips Scotland

The Intrepidus Outdoors multi-day canoe expeditions will give you the opportunity to explore Scotland’s lochs, river and remote landscapes in style. Each package includes transport from Edinburgh, Glasgow or Inverness, all equipment and experienced instructors. Our multi-day canoeing experiences are for anyone looking to explore Scotland’s wild and rugged environment over a few days.


Who is Canoeing for?

Canoeing is for everyone who is looking to explore what Scotland has to offer in style and peace. Canoeing does require a medium level of fitness and to learn some core skills to control and steer the boat. If you don’t already have this experience, our guides will happily teach you in no time at all. The Intrepidus Outdoors multi-day canoeing adventures are the perfect expedition for people who want to master a canoe and explore Scotland.  

What do I need to know about our canoeing expeditions?

On the day of your canoeing activity, we will collect you in our minibus from an agreed location and drive you to the starting point of our expedition.  We will provide you with all the technical equipment that you will need to keep you warm and safe (e.g. canoes, paddles, buoyancy aids), and teach you any skills and techniques that you will need for the adventure. We will then pack the canoes with everything that we need for the trip and begin our adventure. We will then spend the next few days on a canoeing adventure down one of Scotland’s world-class rivers or across one of our amazing lochs. We will wild camp (although some trips do have the option to add accommodation) and cook on stoves on the bank of the rivers.

Outdoor and Adventurous Activities Edinburgh

Intrepidus Outdoors is an adventure tourism and outdoor education provider based in Edinburgh. We specialise in canyoning, coasteering, mountain biking and mountaineering, and deliver these adventurous experiences across Scotland and the North of England. The experiences that we provide take clients into some of the most exquisite, incredible and extreme environments the UK has to offer.

Our values as a adventure tourism provider and a business

Our values reflect those of a business started by a small group of rock climbers and mountain bikers. The experiences that we have had adventuring, and our passion for the outdoors, has led us to choose a lifestyle dedicated to sharing our love for the outdoors with others. The approach that we take to the experiences that we provide, and the business that we run, is that of sustainability, and an unapologetic quest for quality.

For us at Intrepidus Outdoors, we recognise that our experiences kayaking in clean rivers, surfing on unpolluted beaches and climbing frozen waterfalls have contributed to who we are as people. Therefore, protecting the planet so that the next generation of adventurers can have their own experiences, is hugely important for us. We believe that for people, communities and businesses to make the choice to minimise their impact on our planet, they must first value the planet that we have. We feel that the best way for people to value our blue planet, is to have first hand quality experiences in nature. They can then see the beauty of a forest, feel the power of an ocean and learn to love what is outside our towns and cities, so that they then fight to protect them. We strive to through the products that we deliver make a small difference to peoples understanding of the impact that they have on our world.

Our experiences adventuring have made us who we are and Intrepidus Outdoors is a reflection of us. We provide real adventurous experience that we hope you will cherish.
