Equipment
Important part of enjoying your trip in full, is to have the right equipment. For the prearranged trips you mainly need warm clothes and a drinking bottle. Provisions can be provided if you ask for it in advance through E-mail or phone.
We provide tents and cooking equipment for longer tours. You can of course bring your own tent if you like. When you pack keep in mind that storage space of one kayak is limited. The same applies for your backpack in hiking tours.


Prearranged trips
Thermal underwear, at least for kayaking
Hiking pants.
Hiking boots are best but for short walk you can use sports shoes or boots
Backpack for your water and small things. Keep it light. If you travel in a group with others you can decide who are going to carry the backpack. It is not necessary that everyone carries a bag
