Difficulty Level 4 of 5We have graded all of the routes and trips we offer across our various locations on a scale of 1 to 5 (from easy to moderately difficult).

This trip is rated 4/5 because of a few trickier sections you will need to negotiate on the first day of this trip.

Prior canoeing experience is recommended but not required. You will be given a safety brief and will be made aware of the features to look out for along the way.

If you are a confident swimmer, a generally competent person when it comes to learning new things and good at following instructions then you will manage just fine!
