Nice, beautiful nature! Clean, clear water! Beautiful waterfalls! Suitable even for kids, our was 9 and 10 and they love it! They cross true every bridge and they even take a "bath" in a cold river! But in that sun, river was fresh!

Really good fun no health and safety nonsense would recommend keep the river on your left and you can’t get lost. Several ways to head back on a nice bar/restaurant when you finish for a well deserved beer 🍻
