On the 8th-14th of July, 2019, we will be running our annual canoeing expedition along the river Spey. With only four months to go until this amazing trip, we thought that we would have a look ahead at what you can expect on this incredible expedition.
About the River Spey
The river Spey is one of the most incredible rivers in Scotland. It runs from Loch Spey in the Scottish Highlands through to Moray Firth at Spey Bay. It is the third longest and fastest-flowing river in Scotland and the ninth largest river in Scotland.
Where we will travel
On our river Spey expedition, we will be traveling from Loch Insh all the way down to Spey Bay. It will run for five incredible bays which will transport you through some of Scotland’s wildest scenery. The river is home to some amazing wildlife, including Atlantic Salmon, otters, seals, deer and Bottlenose Dolphins have even been spotted in Spey Bay. Who knows what you might be lucky enough to see. If you would like to learn more about the wildlife on the river Spey then read our blog here.

Camp out under the stars
As we travel down the Spey we will be wild camping along the river each night. Setting up under the stars we will have a campfire and a chance to sit around an enjoy the remote scenery. If you would like to learn some bushcraft skills we will be running small demonstrations each evening, but these are not compulsory.
No experience necessary
While some paddling experience is obviously an advantage no experience is required for joining our river Spey canoeing trip. The expert paddlers at Wildway Bushcraft will provide you with tuition and there will be a chance to practice a bit of paddling before getting on the Spey. We do provide you with dry bags to keep your kit safe, but it is best to pack lightly as space in the boats is limited. If you have any questions about what you need to bring then don’t hesitate to contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org . You do need to be over 15 in order to come on this trip and all under 18s need to be accompanied by an adult.
Truly a once in a lifetime experience
Our river Spey trip is truly a once in a lifetime trip. Imagine, five days in the beautiful Scottish Highlands, slowly making your way down the river and camping out under the stars every evening.
