1/2 Day Packraft Adventure        


Discover packrafting! Join us on an adventure hiking and paddling in the beautiful Gwydir Forest.  Hike woodland trails to a  secluded woodland lake.  Once there we'll inflate our packrafts and head out on to the water, float serenely along past lily pads, whilst watching dragon flys swoop and play.  At the end of the lake we'll continue past the ruins of old mineworkings in the trees, descending now back through the forest to our start point.
