The Cairngorms are best explored off-road so, for teens and their parents alike, Cairngorm Quad Treks offers an exhilarating chance to get off the beaten track for some adrenalin-surging action. If you’ve never sat on a quad bike, you needn’t be put off, as the fleet of three-wheeled automatic bikes are incredibly easy to master (expert instructors are always on-hand to get you started and will quickly show you the ropes if you need). With an off-road quad bike, there’s just about nowhere you can’t go, so it’s a fantastic way to explore the scenery, on land or even in water (crossing the River Spey is a must!). Strong shoes and a change of clothes is required!
