The Great Glen
This is a fully guided expedition along the iconic Great Glen. This gem is a 96km route across Scotland though amazing landscape with breath taking view. Conquering the formidable open waters of Loch Lochy and Loch Ness; a challenge in itself.
Using wild campsites along the route and cooking on open fires in a true traditional open canoe trip style. Meals, campsite fees and boat hire are included in trip price. This includes a pre expedition team meet and greet meal at a local restaurant. We also ask paddlers to keep free the following day, as this route can be affected by the weather and slow progress, so having an extra day available allows us, as a group, flexibility.
