We have been watt hiking yesterday with little kids (5 and 8). It was a hike of horror. We certainly expected something else. Water was really really high, with all the rain, walking was even worse. With the the high water, our little daughter fell into the water, screamed for help and we were totally scared. She had to continue walking -in fact we had to carry both kids most of the way“ in fierce rain for another hour or so, completely wet and shivering. I think there were not enough guides, too, for such a big group, and frankly, they also didnt seem to care too much.... The organizers should be more concerned about safety and not allow watt hiking for kids below 12 years of age and warn parents upfront. In addition, in case of rain, they should either warn in addition, or cancel. Also, more guides are needed. If you want to offer this for kids, make a guided 30min tour just close by to the place. SAFETY FIRST! In addition, all our cameras and cell phones got wet, obviously, so bring water tight bags to pack everything. Other families who joined had similar experiences. Memorable? Certainly. But not in a good way. Never ever again.
