Absolutely amazing

Last night we went on a canyoning trip with our guide Kevin(who also happens top be Dutch). It was a great experience. Good guidance and a lot of information during the trip. A little tea break with the magnificent sight of couple of hundred glowworms. An absolute must do If you are near Raglan.

A real fun evening adventure

Our guide Harry was really nice and went out of his way to make the experience even better. Because we were only two people the tour was really customized to our preference. Even though the canyoning is fairly easy the climb out of the waterfall in the night (optional) was lots of fun.
