We’re often asked about the very best things to do in Aviemore, which never fails to put us in a bit of a predicament. The simple fact of the matter is that if you were to come and spend a whole year with us, we’d easily be able to keep you busy each and every day with tons of wonderful things to do. As such, head our way for no more than a few days and it’s a case of singling out a few key highlights of the area.

That’s why for this particular list we’ve looked into the things to do in Aviemore that never fail to delight our guests and always rank as the area’s top picks. And if you don’t get the chance to do everything you wanted this time around, you’ll leave with the perfect excuse to come back again…hopefully soon!

Aviemore Ski Opportunities

If you’ve been wondering where to find the region’s best skiing, walking, cycling, swimming and general relaxation opportunities, you might be pleased to hear you can find pretty much all of them in one place. Aviemore serves up an all-in-one leisure package that’s absolutely brilliant for weekends, longer stays and even daytrips. For singles, couples, groups and families alike, everyone can find exactly what it is they’re looking for in the very same place, allowing all of you to make the very most of your time.

Cairngorm Mountain Railway

A firm favourite of ours we never fail to recommend, the Cairngorm Mountain Railway is exciting, exhilarating and unmissable! Scale Britain’s sixth highest mountain in style using the superb mountain railway services, which along the way give guests a privileged insight into the area’s key facts and figures. At the top you’ll find not only the most breathtaking views imaginable, but also the fantastic Ptarmigan Restaurant and mountain exhibition. 

Cairngorm Sleddog Adventure Centre

Where else in the UK can you find a centre like this? Well, we'll tell you where – nowhere! The Cairngorm Sleddog Adventure Centre is the only one in the whole of Great Britain and offers the unique opportunity to get up close and personal with the dogs themselves, the mushers in control of them and…of course…embark on an amazing sleddog ride for yourself!

Cairngorm Brewery

While strolling around Aviemore, you’ll be able to wander over to Cairngorm Brewery in no time at all. The perfect place to find out a little more about how real beer and ale should be made, traditional crafting processes are still used today as they have been for generations. And of course, all tours include the obligatory tasting sessions!

Cairngorm Reindeer Centre

Last but not least, this also happens to be the only place in the UK you’ll find a free-roaming herd of reindeer, which come Christmas Day or the midst of the summer are a sight you simply will not believe. Of course the winter makes the most magical time of all to see this one-of-a-kind wonder – you won’t want to forget your camera for this one!
