White Water River Bugging - Oban

River Awe, Grade 2/3

Vertical Descents is the only company on the West Coast to offer this exciting and relatively new outdoor activity.

River Bugs are purpose built white water crafts, not to be confused with adventure tubes or hydro speeds. They are manoeuvrable, inflatable armchair-like one man rafts. You will be kitted up with webbed gloves, flippers and thermal neoprene wetsuit and have some of the best white water fun you could imagine. These amazing river bugs are a guaranteed laugh and are a new and different way of travelling down some of Scotland's finest rivers.

Experience fun and exhilarating rapids on one of Scotland's most beautiful rivers. Cliff jumps and wild swimming included in this great value trip.

Why choose Vertical Descents?

We are the only river bug provider on the West Coast of Scotland and have pioneered new and exciting trips to suit a wide range of abilities – we love this activity and know you will too!

£60 per person See Essential Info table below for more details
