What you need to bring

Clothing

Footwear:

At the moment we ask you to provide your own. Your feet will get wet.
High boots with good ankle support and protection are essential – old walking boots are our recommendation.

Lower-Half:

Swimwear or leggings work well under our neoprene dungarees. Please wear synthetic layers or merino wool. Jeans or cotton are not appropriate.

Top Half:

Synthetic or merino wool layers (no cottons or jeans). Base layers work best under-neath our canyoneering wetsuits. They will get wet. A large warm insulated jacket is also recommended to wear over our suits when enjoying lunch in the canyon.

Spare Clothing:

It is essential to also bring spare warm layers, just incase you get cold. The canyon environment is far cooler than most areas as it is shaded and high humidity. We will provide you a dry-bag to store these in during the day. There are plenty of opportunities during the trip to add or remove layers to comfort.

Lunch

We recommend a packed lunch and some snacks which can be stored in our buoyancy aids, such as granola bars or chocolates. We provide you a dry-bag to store your lunch safely inside the kayaks.

Bring a water bottle with you. Although we are in a river, the upstream catchment borders the A835 road and we do not recommend drinking directly from the water.

A warm sugary drink in a flask is highly recommended.

 Accessories

Day Bag or backpack

A small day-sack is needed to carry the dry-bag we provide. Again, this will get wet. At times you will be swimming with this, so a smaller bag is better than a larger one – with the dry-bag inside they make quite a good float to hold onto too.

Waterproof Suncream.

Although we are deep in a canyon, it is still possible to get sunburn without adequate protection. Any suncream worn must be waterproof.

Cameras & Phones

Taking electronic devices into the water, comes with an inherent risk. It is your decision whether you want to take them. We provide dry-bags and optionally waterproof phone cases as part of our tour.

During the canyoneering adventure our guides, who are also expert photographers will also carry their own camera equipment and offer professional images as part of the trip.

Medication

If you are on medication or require medication stops during the day, you must declare this on our booking form. This will in no way affect your booking but  allows our guides to tailor the trip itinerary to include your needs.

A Sense of Adventure

This is also provided as part of the trip…
