Scotland - The New White Water Rafting Capital of Europe


Scotland has taken its place as the new Mecca for white water rafting and extreme sports enthusiasts. With over 120 activity centres around the country you can do it all here - from jumping off cliffs, sliding through canyons and rolling down hills in plastic balls, to more traditional activities such as white water rafting, quad biking and clay pigeon shooting.

The rugged landscape is perfect for hair-raising outdoor pursuits. As Mark Turner of specialist outdoor sports website adrenalinePASS.com says, "We are especially looking forward to the rafting season on the River Tummel. This is undoubtedly the best white water rafting available in the country over the summer."

The Tummel is dam-release, guaranteeing water levels every weekend from June to September. It is a narrow, technical and exciting river, offering almost continuous rapids to Grade IV, culminating in the descent of a double-drop waterfall!

"An alternative waterfall descent", Mark continues, "is on one of our canyoning trips. This time there's no boat involved, instead participants are lowered down on a rope in a controlled abseil." Canyoning descents also involve scrambling, jumps into plunge pools, natural water flumes and slides.

A wide range of clients enjoy adventures with adrenalinePASS.com. Individuals and families on day visits or holidays, through to a range of groups, from stag and hen parties to corporate outings. Their philosophy of professional delivery, from experienced but also highly enthusiastic instructors, has produced a winning formula.

So, if you're looking to do something a little bit different this summer and fancy some excitement in your life, go to www.adrenalinepass.com and choose your ideal adventure.
