  1. Amazing experience!

    Wonderful experience! Beautiful scenery. Delicious food and friendly guides. Highly recommend trip if you enjoy something different!

  2. Wonderful river adventure

    A totally unique, once in a lifetime experience for adults and kids. Jolly tough but so worth it. Lorna and Gavin make it into an incredible adventure with attention to details, delicious food and such fun! Highly recommended…

  3. This was quite honestly the BEST and most memorable 4 days of our familys’ lives! Paddling the river with 3 families and with 6 children under the age of 12 was the perfect experience. Camp set up, fishing, swimming, game-viewing, stargazing, water gun fights, clean fresh water, amazing food, perfectly manageable rapids and wonderful hosts made our 4 days something we will treasure for a life time. Thank you Adventure Kayaking……we will be back!
