In addition to the experiences on the Atlantic, a wonderful experience. Pleasant fresh water and easy flowing water with a couple of cheerful rapids. The kayaks are not very comfortable as there is no backrest. The person in front receives a suitable provisional solution from a packing barrel. You get used to it. On the way we had a short time to swim. The companion was lovingly committed.

The tour was well organized. The guide contacted us personally two days before the tour and informed us of the meeting point and the essential aspects in advance. On the day of the excursion, the guides were at the agreed meeting point on time and gave us excellent instructions on the commands and the special features of the kayak tour. The tour is ideal for beginners and yet varied and entertaining due to several rapids. The guides were super nice and took photos and videos of the participants during the tour. We were very satisfied and can only warmly recommend the tour
