This is a true once in a lifetime adventure tour for those wanting to experience the best of three exciting activities in one itinerary. The riding is manageable for novice riders. The hiking is moderate to challenging and clients should have the appropriate level of fitness. The kayaking requires no experience although clients should be comfortable around water and have a good level of fitness (note there is a portage of approximately 100m while on the river). Clients considering this adventure tour should be confident travelling in remote areas, be prepared for inclement weather and necessary itinerary changes and most of all have a sense of humour and a flexible attitude. As with all our scheduled riding and hiking trips, this trip is fully supported leaving you to carry only a day pack during hiking. Saddle bags are provided for the riding section and all equipment is provided for the kayaking with waterproof gear and booties. The trip is guided from start to finish by an experienced English speaking wilderness guide. Riding Experience: As this is an adventure tour, clients should have good stamina levels. Age Limit: Ages 14 - 70. Young travellers need to be hardy and accompanied by an experienced and capable adult. Please see our family itineraries for ideas on what activities are available to younger children. Older clients are welcome but may be asked to complete a medical suitability questionnaireIncludes
