Aviemore is one of Britain's adventure capitals, thanks to the Cairngorm Mountain ski resort, the nearby national outdoor centre at Glenmore Lodge and the sensational hiking and mountaineering found in the Cairngorms, which contain five of Britain's six highest mountains.
For hikers, utilising the ski resort’s base station means that you can start from 2,083 feet (635 m), giving you quicker access to the giant Munros of the Cairngorm Plateau, the UK's only sub-Arctic wilderness.
The town itself has a unique character: part Highland charm, part ski resort chic. Its atmosphere is infectious year-round. There's a wealth of accommodation, many gear shops, good amenities and lots of places to eat and drink.
