River Spey Bushcraft Canoe Expedition
5 day River Spey Bushcraft Canoe Expedition
Our River Spey Bushcraft Canoe Expedition will run from 7th – 11th Aug 2017. Each night we will be wild camping along the trail. There will also be some land-based bushcraft sessions that you can take part in, or you might prefer to just relax and enjoy your beautiful surroundings.
The River Spey Bushcraft Canoe Expedition will start on Lock Inch and will take us all the way to Spey Bay.
You will get the chance to receive some paddle coaching on the loch before we start the main river journey, so don’t panic, you don’t need to be an expert paddler, but some canoe experience would be an advantage, although not necessary.
This canoe journey will offer you a unique and intimate experience of the River Spey and its breathtaking surroundings.
Our experienced and trained course leaders will provide expert canoe tuition for all levels of experience and ability.
All safety and technical equipment required for the trip will be provided. But if you have your own buoyancy aid, please do bring it along with you. We will provide you with a dry bags to keep your kit in. Space in the boats will be very limited so please pack lightly and only bring what you will need.
Participants will be required to bring their own camping equipment, we will provide you with a comprehensive kit list to help you pack.
It is a self-catering trip, so you will need to bring your own food. If you need help or advice about what food to bring, then please do get in touch.
