A warm family welcome. The top-quality equipment is in excellent condition. The staff are always ready to help and never seem to stop smiling. We had a lovely time travelling down the river. The wild and natural landscapes fairly took our breath away. I would definitely recommend this to other people and can’t wait to relive the experience.

Why do I need to reserve?

We strongly recommend booking your relaxing day with us in advance for the following reasons.

  • Having enough kayaks available : it would be a pity to travel all that way only to find that all our kayaks are being used.
  • To offer you a better service: if we know the number of people and the time of your arrival, it will be easier to plan how to cater for your requirements.
  • Choice of kayaks: some days all the single-seat kayaks are being used and other days it is all the two-person kayaks that have been taken out . When you reserve you have the opportunity to decide what model you would like to have.
  • Saving time: when you reserve, it helps us to gather all the information we need to serve you more quickly the day you arrive to set off in one of our kayaks.

Let’s be friends !
