Edinburgh Hen White Water Rafting
White water rafting is undoubtedly one of our most popular hen water activity. An exhilarating trip down a rapid flowing river is a great way to see the Scottish countryside from another angle. The rafting is about 1 hour North of Edinburgh making for a great day out. This is one of our favourite Hen Weekends in Edinburgh activity!!!
Whitewater rafting takes the form of a large inflatable craft specially constructed to carry up to 8 adrenalin-seeking participants down rivers of varying difficulty - from the tame to the wildly dangerous. Rivers rate from grade 2 up wards. The team will work together to guide the raft through zig zags and rapids feeling the power of the river. It is a fantastic day out for all involved and will be talked about for ages after you get your breath back.
"If you are coming to Edinburgh, Scotland, you have got to do this, you can hen party in a city but can you Raft?"
Where are the Rivers?
The rivers are located in Perthshire just north of Perth. It's pretty much dual carriage way all the way up so making it quick and easy to go rafting if you are staying in Edinburgh.
Take swim wear with you, wet suits are provided. A normal raft trip lasts half a day. On your arrival you will be issued with ALL the necessary specialist equipment which includes a wet suit, wet suit jacket, buoyancy aid, helmet, boots and socks.
You will then be taken to the put in point and given a full safety brief before your river trip begins. Which river we use will depend on the time of year and rain fall. Once you are in the raft a ride of your life begins.
