Holy crap - That was amazing
Dec 2014 • Couples
I've never been in a canoe before this trip and I can't really swim but there was never a point on this trip that I thought I was out of my depth. Jamie is an amazing guide giving you a run-down of what to expect down river and the best way to handle it which let us concentrate on having fun and taking in the sights.
Over 5 days, we paddled down the river seeing amazing scenery (bring a camera!). Every time we turned a corner, I'd expect to see a dinosaur. It's like being in Jurassic Park!
The campsites we stayed at were all quiet and green and we always got first pick at the best spots. When other campers arrived, they looked at us enviously because Jamie was setting up a sunshade over the best picnic table or cooking a roast lamb in his camping oven (didn't know you could even do that!).
On this particular tour, the group was me and my wife, a family of 3, a (new) couple, and two girls in their own. We all came from different ends of the country and it's funny how everyone starts out with a handshake on the first day but ends with hugs.
Super fun.
