A great experience Kayaking down the river, and seeing the places used in filming for The Hobbit. Peaceful with a couple of rapids though not too difficult for first timers to handle! All the equipment you'll need is on hand.

Very friendly and enjoyable. Saw the sights and weren't rushed. A must for hobbit fans and still enjoyable even if you haven't seen the films
