Adventurer Testimonials

"Had such an amazing experience with Keswick Adventures. As someone who has canoed before I wanted my son's first time to be perfect for his 8th birthday. Couldn't have chosen a better company or instructor. We had a blast from start to finish. My son has additional needs and Lee was so accommodating, understanding and patient."
