What’s Included

Paddlesports package

Intro to canoeing, kayaking and paddleboarding

Available for 1, 2 or 4 people

Experienced instructors

Perfect gift for adventure lovers

If your greatest water-based excitement involved Mr Matey mounting a sneak attack on Rubber Duckie then this Big Deal will be an eye-opener.

Brought to you by Action Adventure Activities near Gartmore, on the edge of the Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park, this paddle sports experience would make an outstanding gift.

Lasting approximately one hour on the water, it is available for one person, two people or a family (one adult and three children or two adults and two children), meaning it could be a group present too.

Fantastic introduction

A great introduction to kayaking, canoeing and the very hip sport of paddleboarding, your trip is based at Action Adventure Activities’ farm near Gartmore, on their own private lochan.

The area’s spectacular landscape of mountains and lochs provides an atmospheric backdrop for this experience.

You will be shown the basics of the different sports, with guidance from an expert instructor.

Experienced instructors

Based deep in Braveheart country on the edge of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, Action Adventure Activities have spent over 30 years in the Scottish hospitality industry and the staff have a wealth of experience in numerous outdoor pursuits.

Safety is their prime concern so, when you take to the water, you know you are in good hands.

Board meeting

Paddleboarding is a variation on the traditional Pacific sport of surfing. In this sport, stand up paddle boarders remain upright on their boards and use a paddle to propel themselves through the water.

The sport is on the crest of a wave in the States, where this traditional Hawaiian activity has become an outdoor pursuit as popular with hipsters as it is with families.

With this offer, you will be able to learn canoeing and kayaking skills from the experienced instructors while enjoying the scenery from a new perspective.

There is a minimum age of six for this Big Deal. All under eighteens must be accompanied by a participating adult.

All craft, wetsuits, buoyancy aids provided.

Happy paddlers

Lots of visitors have been keen to tell TripAdvisor of their experiences with Action Adventure Activities:

‘Paddle boarding, kayaking and canoeing. There were three of us among a group of eleven, swapping between the three types of craft. Instructor was very friendly and helpful. Had a great time on the water; current and wind making it a challenge. Would recommend this to anyone who likes having fun and getting wet.’

AAA’s Facebook reviews are just as enthusiastic:

‘We had an awesome time. Would definitely do it again. Can highly recommend this to everyone. 
The staff are great and it’s a great way to spend a day.’
