This trip was amazing! We were fortunate to have been a small group of only 5 people and all of us had very good fitness which made the trip easier. The variety in the activities and the order was perfect. Plenty of rest between each activity. The trip was well run and organised and the people we met along the way who ran different activities were equally as excellent.
