We paddled from Puhoi to Wenderholm and were then bought back to Puhoi. Professional, friendly, safety conscious without being too serious, it was a really good afternoon out - thank you!

The staff was super helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly. Everything was as expected. The whole operation is very professional and personable. The actual trip was so beautiful and can be as difficult or easy as you want depending on skill/activity level.

These guys are great, they take the time to explain everything and make sure you are comfortable before sending you on the way. We had a great time canoeing up the river and it was very affordable. Would definitely recommend this to others.
