Outback Kayak is very intent on giving you a wonderful paddling experience. The shop is right in downtown Lincoln, NH. The put in is a few minutes drive once you get your gear. The guide, Peter, was wonderful. Just the right mix of being helpful, knowledgeable and kind, but also not too chatty. I had time to just take it all in and he adjusted to my pace. I went on a weekday so it was just me and him bso we made great time as I wanted a brisk workout. Typically with a group, allow 2 hours. THe river is fun and a few class 1 rapids so not TOO scary. Lovely pristine setting. Lots of bird/fowl. THey pick you up and bring you back to your car. I had a great time and would highly recommned OUTBACK to anyone.
