As a small island anchored off the tip of Europe, Brits have always been at home in the water.
From Admiral Nelson to Sir Francis Drake, our great sailors have protected our shores and discovered new lands.
Celebrate our maritime heritage with today’s Big Deal on an exciting half day tubing adventure with Action Adventure Activities in Stirlingshire.
Floating down a river on a custom-built, inflatable donut – it’s what Admiral Nelson would have wanted.
River tubing adventure
Based out of Easterhill Farm, on the picturesque edge of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, Action Adventure Activities have plenty of experience running a wide range of outdoor activities.
The area’s spectacular landscape of mountains and lochs will make a great backdrop for this safe introduction to the exciting sport of tubing.
After a briefing and safety equipment kit out, your tubing adventure will begin in relatively calm waters where the guides will test your balance and nerve before the river speeds up.
As the faster sections of the river approach you’ll need all your wits about you.
Dips, flumes and rapids
It will take a lot of focus to navigate you and your tube down the steepest dips, quickest rapids and fastest flumes that the river can throw at you.
Will you be a ‘Tuber’ or a ‘Swimmer’?
There may also be a chance to set your tube aside and do some jumps and flips into pools.
Depending on group size, fitness and confidence, your adventure will last four hours in total with up to 21/2 hours at the water.
Health and safety is always a priority at Action Adventure Activities. All the instructor staff are trained to relevant National Governing Body standards and all the necessary safety equipment will be issued and demonstrated prior to starting your activity.
This Big Deal is ideal for anyone keen to taste the thrill of river tubing but it would also make a great part of a weekend away; a stag or hen do or simply a refreshing alternative to vegging in front of the telly.
