Canoe Bivvy for the night.

Tips for your course

To Wear:

  • Old trainers or similar (something you can swim in and will stay on your feet) 
  • Waterproofs (at least an anorak in case it rains, ideally waterproof trousers too) 
  • Warm top (even in summer, if the sun goes in it can get cold) 
  • Warm trousers (avoid jeans if possible) 
  • Hat (in summer a baseball cap or similar and if cold a woolly hat) 
  • Gloves (in cold weather) 

To bring (dry barrel):

  • Spare clothes 
  • Towel 
  • Drinking water and bottle, at least 1 litre per person per day, (we don’t supply cups) 
  • Food (biscuits etc are good. Try to avoid fresh items like chicken, fish etc that could spoil in the hot sun). Ration packs can be purchased online from various retailers. 
  • Any medication and allergy medicine (i.e. inhalers, epipens etc) 
  • Spare trainers or boots (for after the activity) 
  • Tent (if you don’t want to bivvy) 
  • Sleeping bag, pillow etc... 
  • Cutlery, sporks etc... 

We provide:

  • Canoes, PFD’s, paddles, helmets, dry barrels (60 litres per person) 
  • Tarps, roll mats and bivvy bags 
  • Gas trangias, mess tins. 

We provide dry barrels and dry bags so you can keep your spare kit dry.  Other items you may find useful:

  1. If possible avoid wearing wellington boots (difficult to swim in). 
  2. If you wear glasses it’s a good idea to tie some string to them. 
  3. If it’s summer, then sun screen is a good idea. 
  4. Avoid taking expensive electronic devices or jewellery in the canoe.
