Full description
Start your trip with a 20-minute scenic forest drive from Storms River Village to the drop off point in the Goesa Nature Reserve. Receive your tube and get fully kitted out with specialized equipment. Then, be guided by a local expert guide taking a steep 800m walk down the side of the gorge gets you to river's edge. Then, for the next 4-5 hours negotiate your way down this phenomenal river by means of flatwater paddling, bouldering, optional tube, and cliff jumps. Experience lots of laughs and spectacularly unique scenery along the way.

At the half-way point, stop for a recharge with a chocolate bar and a tube balancing session. Then, follow the cascade down double dumper which brings you to your last few pools before the canyon majestically opens out at the Storms River Mouth Suspension Bridges in the famous Tsitsikamma National Park. Exit the river at the concrete jetty bringing you to the suspension bridge boardwalk. Enjoy a 20-minute walk back to the parking area where the shuttle bus awaits you. Drive for 20 minutes back through the National Park to Storms River Village for a well-earned hot shower.
