Our pack-rafting overnighter was the perfect mix of adrenalin and zen-like calm inducing pleasure. The River had exciting rapids and bits where you floated and watched the banks flash by (if you’re a LOTR geek you might expect to catch sight of the Uruk Hai pounding past – this is where the river scene in The Fellowship was filmed – cooool). Finally we ended up at a Lake in the afternoon – an idyllic spot with a beautiful sandy beach, mountains stretching away on all sides, a hut, a few other campers and lots of tracks to explore the area. In the morning we ‘tramped’ back to the van, it was all totally amazing – just wish there were more places that offered pack-rafting. Thanks to our wonderful guide Huw who taught us a lot about paddling and even lit our fire with a flint – what a pro!
