THE SERIOUS STUFF THAT PARENTS/ GUARDIANS MIGHT WANT TO KNOW

Safety comes first. Our expert guides will give you clear and very easy to follow safety instructions before you get on the river. They will be in charge at all times, and you don’t even have to paddle if you don’t want to. The rivers which we have chosen have Grade 2 to 3 rapids on them. This means they have been assessed as small to medium size, with no major obstacles.
