KAYAK SJOA MULTI-DAY DESCENTS

Overview

* The goal is to descend the whole route safely and in tune with nature. This will require a prudent and practical approach. This will not be a huck fest of a tour. There may runnable waterfalls and Grade 5 rapids en-route, but these may/will be portaged and admired from riverside in the interests of the groups task, of enjoying the whole river descent experience - the whitewater, the company of nature and each other.

* We will lead and prepare meals, however all in the group will contribute to safety & living on the river together.

* A minimum of class 3+ skills required. This is expedition style kayaking where we carry all we need with no outside support, except for emergency.

* Ideally we meet the evening before to pack our boats, source those last minute forgotten items, double check and get to know eachother.

* River levels will be the ultimate decider of tour availability. Flexibility is in as much respect to the river as too our safety.

* All body parts need to be functioning and in order, as these descents require a fair amount of physical activity.

* There will be a screening of previous experiences and/or current whitewater competence during the request & booking process to determine legibility of joining these overnight descents.

* Please see the options below for departure dates.

* We are open to discuss alternative dates for these guided tours.
