What the trip involves:
A brief outline:
The first day, we will meet at 1030am – so take Friday off work and school. Adventures that prioritise time together over work and play are even more nourishing for your connection!
That afternoon we will teach you the skills to manouvre your canoe and begin to understand the art of navigating the rapids, as well as all the safety tips you need to know to have an enjoyable trip.
After sleeping the night, we will pack our belongings into barrels and head downstream, carrying everything we need to survive and thrive as a community in our canoes.
Stargazing around the fire and morning wellness sessions round out the holistic experience of you two strengthening and celebrating your connection and the role you play in each other lives, how it weaves, much like a river through a landscape.
