It's been a few years- further back than the calendar here will allow- but I still dream of revisiting. Marc and Lars have put together an incredible mix of fun, adventure, beauty and serenity. These have networked and gathered an outstanding group of experts who love the water and do everything to make sure their clients have a very safe and adrenaline filled days. The tent camps over the water is better than any four seasons hotel, and only outdone by the morning yoga and fantastic food/wine. Hot showers and flushing toilets help. Riding with Chilean saddles- never got sore and almost brought one home-even when I don't ride at home. Eating off the raspberry bushes- guess that's what I think summer camp is all about. White water rafting- unbelievably exhilarating, and only scary when you review on the video. DO NOT MISS. Totally rejuvenated and energized. Getting there was an adventure but a great way to see the country side. think the route has changed since i visited but area they route through now- been wanting to see that area for a while. Planning again!
