What to Expect
We select the exact venue and route of our overnight trips to best fit with the weather conditions. This allows us to be flexible to your needs and ability and maximise your enjoyment and ambitions. Our staff will be in touch within 36 hours of your trip commencement to confirm the meeting point, which is typically in the Inverpollaidh area, close to Achiltibuie. Should we require a different location we will be in touch with good notice.
We meet at 10am on day 1 where we will provide you with the equipment and food you need. Our guides will teach you the top tips and handy hints for packing our canoes so our gear stays safe and dry.
Whether exploring the lochs or approaching a hill to climb, we will venture onto the water and start our journey. The pace and distance of the day is up to you.
When we are ready, we will select a camp. Our guides will help you in pitching the tents if you need. We also carry a large group tent or tarp, which gives us the chance to shelter from the rain, sun or midges should we wish. Even better, in good weather we can sit outside and enjoy the sunset.
Our guides will cook you delicious meals throughout to make sure we have all the energy we need. If you are feeling adventurous, after dinner we can venture back onto the water for a sunset paddle, one of the most magical experiences possible in a canoe before returning ashore to toast a glass of wine.
Whether out for one night or several, we will explore and camp at your pace.
On our final day, we return for approximately 3-4pm, allowing us time to unpack and organise our canoes before heading onward to your next adventure.
On all of our trips we practice the Leave No Trace principles ensuring we leave our footprints as minimised as possible.
