What People are Saying
Tired but happy. Great impression of a stunning country, saw so many places I would not have been able to visit on my own (or wouldn't have even known about). Learned a lot. Met cool people, had fun. Day I liked best: Saturday's improvised program with snow, sandwiches and hot springs.

Family B. 2017, Tour J
It was the perfect mix of fun and challenge: learning how to steer and understand the river, it helped develop condfidence and has given me and my dad really brilliant memories (I hope for him too).
