1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

It was a wonderful week and all the activities were exciting and fun. Being able to leave the hotel to go straight on the river for Stand up Paddle boarding in clear 'cold' water was an excellent way to get used to the water. Both Kayaking days were exhilarating working for young and old alike with good options to take the cascades, jump them or walk down. The Lakes were really beautiful, the cycle experience was complimented by a wonderful stop at the mill with an amazing lunch. A great mix of activities making each day special and memorable. Our guide, Borna, was very knowledgable and accomodating. He went out of his way to help us, tailoring the day to our needs and setting up a fabulous second session of paddle boarding on our free day.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Bring plenty of swim gear as drying kit out in the hotel is not easy. Ask ahead of arriving to make sure you get a room at the rear of the hotel and top floor (room 13 was good) to miss all the entrance and vehicles coming and going noise at the front. When you are here for a week getting an apartment with two ajoining rooms and bigger bathroom (Apartment 2 was good) is a must for a family. Be prepared to up spend to 4 hours per day in a vehicle travelling to activities

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?
