``Guiding people in this environment is unique. I’m always looking for that wow factor, that expectation that around the corner is something that is going to blow people’s mind. It’s an amazing honour and pleasure to be able to experience that as a guide.`` - Jeff Allen
“Wilderness is not a luxury but a necessity of the human spirit, and as vital to our lives as water and good bread.`` - Edward Abbey
Expedition team members are welcome to bring their own personal activity/outdoor clothing and equipment but because of varying personal requirements, other equipment extraneous to the base equipment already provided and listed below, can be organized when booking.
All equipment is provided for the dog sledding activity but you will need to bring your own thermal base layers and light weight gloves to keep off wind chill when using cameras etc.
Expedition Paddler will provide the following:
Paddle’s plus spare paddle
Neoprene Paddle Mitts
Team members may wish to hire dry suits from the out fitter.
Depending on the groups experience, the ski touring/snow shoe activity will be one or the other and includes:
Ski’s or snow shoes
For this activity team members will require a warm insulation jacket to wear whilst resting and shall also need to provide themselves with a small day pack for carrying this jacket when not in use as well as flask/cameras etc
For all of the activities it is recommended that you bring with you several pairs of base layers, I would recommend merino wool but there are other alternatives to this.
You will also need a lightweight pair of gloves as well as warm mitts, a buff or face mask, a warm wooly hat (or 2) a hot drinks flask as well as a water drinks bottle, a camera of course and a small ouch pouch (personal first aid kit) to include any personal medication and to treat any small injuries you may receive during the activities.
I shall be carry a well equipped first aid pack but this will not take into account any allergies that you may suffer from.
