What we offer

We are expedition experts.

We will help you design your expedition, guide you through organising travel logistics both to and from the expedition as well as throughout it, teach you the skills to travel efficiently in your choice of craft, provide all the extra equipment you need and a million other things to make sure that your expedition is designed around you and your needs.

 

We have worked hard to be able to offer our Paddlesports expedition packages at the same price as walking. This includes using all extra equipment like the craft (canoe, kayak & SUP), buoyancy aids, paddles, dry bags, etc.
