Outstanding trip in every way - excellent guiding, fascinating Indigenous perspective on this remote wilderness area, great food, very well-organised and comfortable camping. Very safety-conscious and responsible, but also flexible and fun - we are keen to explore more rivers with Alpine River Adventures.

Had a fantastic day out with guides, Richard and Christian on the mighty Snowy River! Lunch was fantastic and overall it was a great way to be challenged and see some otherwise untouched areas of the River!
