IMPORTANT INFORMATION & FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS Q- How much canoeing/kayaking experience is required? A- While we do require you to be of reasonable fitness, no experience is required for our canoe tours. Our trips are designed to cater to all levels of experience. All that we ask is that you welcome adventure with an open mind. Q- Do I need to be in great shape to join one of your tours? A- We require a reasonable level of fitness we ask that you are capable of a few hours of moderate exercise, although the hiking sections of the tour are not long they are quite steep and involve some scrambling and low-level climbing. It can be quite hot in the gorge over summer, we start the tour early to avoid the peak of the heat, but you need to consider your capabilities in hot conditions. Most important is an adventurous spirit. Q-How much paddling is there? A- We paddle for 6 km, 3km down the river and then 3km back to our canoe site for about 1.5 hours.
