    What people have to say!

    I want to thank you sincerely for the fantastic 3-day adventure you gave my entire family when we came to the river recently. Children and adults really enjoyed staying at your cottage and the captivating landscape.

    Unforgettable 3-Day Adventure
    The staff were so friendly. Learning how to control a kayak is probably one of the best decisions I have made. There are also facilities available for changing clothes as you will get wet. Will do it again for sure next year!

    Great Service!
    We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday on the river and felt truly exhilarated and alive after two days – glorious memories. We are making plans to contact you again as we plan our next trip; perhaps we will stay a few more days.
