The hot pools were great. I endorse Ben McEwan’s recommendation -this is just what we did. In addition, we packed barely anything, put it all in a dry bag, and tramped up with an inflatable raft. Then we cruised back down to the car park skipping the 3 hour walk home, it was great. It is possible to do with kids, I did it with my 8 year old but he found it a bit scary, though it wasn’t really.
