Aviemore – Outdoor Activities Capital of the UK?
We think yes! Aviemore has more activities and numbers of people doing outdoor activities than anyone in the UK so why not – simple!
There is plenty of competition from Wales, the Lake district, Peak district and Fort william but the variety of activities and volume of people doing them here outweighs anywhere in the UK, just look at all the Outdoor Activity Providers trying to get in on the act of Aviemore!
When we set up in 1999/2000 we were the only company based in Aviemore doing walk in off the street activities such as rafting, canyoning, duckies, gorge walking, rock climbing, kayaking, canoeing and mountain biking. There were plenty of traditional outdoor centres providing outdoor ed courses etc but no “quick fix” “wackywoo” activities! Now there are at least 7 or 8 either moving into Aviemore or saying they are based in Aviemore. Some companies are using Aviemore as a search term on their websites but not actually based in Aviemore (cheating? that’s another issue!), this shows that people are desperate to get a slice of the pie that is the pulling power of Aviemore.
Here’s just a selection of activities we do:-
That’s just a selection of activities we do the area also has, skiing and snowboard area, Landmark, Treezone, horse riding, quad bikes, paintball, spey descent overnight trips, loads of walking, archery, shooting, fishing and plenty more!
So we challenge anyone, are you busier than Aviemore? Aviemore should be the UK capital for Outdoor Activities it always has been and probably will always be.
