The female kayaker, who Northern Constabulary say was in her early twenties and from the north of England, went missing this morning when her kayak overturned in the River Coe.
A Sea King helicopter from HMS Gannet in Prestick joined police, mountain rescue and coastguard volunteers in a search of the river from the Clachaig Inn to Glencoe Village.
The search was called off when a body was recovered in the area this afternoon.
A police spokesman said: "Northern Constabulary can confirm that following the search for the missing kayaker, the body of a woman has been found and recovered.
"No further details regarding the identity of the woman will be released until formal identification has taken place."
