open canoeing  

Given our unique location Snowgoose Mountain Centre offers the opportunity for some great experiences  to learn  paddling an open canoe, take a longer guided trip for one day or more, or for the more experienced independently explore the west  at your own pace using our hire & shuttle service.

Our open canoeing adventure days, daily canoe trips, overnight are a superb way to discover and explore one of the wilder locations of Scotland.

As you learn to glide across a smooth inland loch ruffled by the breeze, paddle down a clear mountain river, lap up stunning mountain views all around, there are always chances to glimpse our local wild life.

Our day trips or overnight paddling experiences offer the opportunity to do just that, stopping to take memorable pictures, refresh yourself with lunch or camp overnight on the wild side at the water’s edge.

Our two-person canoes are easy to handle so you can quickly and easily learn the key skills from our guides during the trip. This is ideal way to learn about the skills of open canoeing. With the added bonus of choosing your camp site, loading the canoes & paddling into the wild.

Local day paddles by open canoe are ideal for individuals, families or groups of friends who do not necessarily have a high level of technical skills but who really do want to get out there on the water with the support of a local paddling guide. Experience a unique sheltered, freshwater inland loch or easy tidal paddling experience with spectacular west coast highland scenery on a short, guided open canoe adventure. However, some river and open water trips may be considered to be at a more technical level.

These thoroughly enjoyable days out on the water are accompanied at all times by trained guides who will look after your safety, interpret the wild life around you and ensure your comfort.
