Great Glen Unsupported 5 day expedition
Total Cost of this trip -£599 per person. £300 deposit to secure your place on the trip. Final payment must be made at least 6 weeks prior to event.
Meeting at Neptunes Staircase (Fort William) for 9.30am on the first day, from here we will pack up our kit into dry bags and set off on the 64 mile journey to Inverness passing through breath taking scenery across the Canals and Lochs of the Great Glen Sup Trail.
Soaking in the stunning views of Ben Nevis from Loch Lochy, the mystical and scenic Loch Oich and the humongous Loch Ness, which holds as much water as all the lakes and rivers in England and Wales combined. Camping under the stars in Hammocks and eating alfresco is all part of the fun.
Due to the ever changeable nature of weather (winds) in the Glen, we will aim for 15-20km a day of paddling but this maybe shortened or lengthened depending on conditions. This is a full expedition with no support. Customers should be comfortable paddling this distance before taking on this challenge. Full coaching and guiding will be done throughout the trip.
On our final day Sup2summit will organise a taxi to take us back to Neptunes Staircase.
