This is one of the most stunning settings in the world to set off from on a paddling school. The first day presents us with easy moving water to get into the swing of things.

From Cedar Camp, we take on the first rapids of the trip, through Turtle Gorge and then we approach the village of Tiloguite. We paddle through a flat water "mini-Gorge" going through town and approach our camp where we will do some theory in the afternoon today.

Day 6


As we set off today, you'll get a real sense of achievement at how much you have improved already. As the rapids come a little more frequently, we slow it right down on the river and stop and inspect rapids, so you get to use your own judgement on what to run. You'll be delighted by the time we get to our camp tonight at "the Mill"

Today is by far the most stunning scenery as we travel through 2 deep gorges, literally 8 feet wide and around 300 feet straight up!
