Sue Tuerena – Spaces available on a Gold DofE expedition to Sweden

Spaces available on a Gold D of E expedition to Sweden. 

Due to unexpected circumstances we have 1-3 places available on a Gold expedition to Sweden with a Girl Guide group.  So this is suited to girls aged 16-20. 

We will fly to Oslo airport and then be picked up and taken to the outfitters who will provide us with accommodation when not paddling and all canoes and camping equipment.  (Included in the costs)

We will be paddling the Svartalven river which is remote and wild camping is expected for each of the 4 expedition nights.  Participants need to be physically strong as there will be portages over a water shed and around dams.  Ideally candidates will be available to take part in the practice expedition on the Trent 11th-14th July to meet the rest of the group and to take part in additional training for the remote countryside. We fly from Gatwick to Oslo early on 28th July and return lunchtime on 4th August. There is an opportunity to visit a moose farm and visit the local area on the last day.

Costs including both practice and final expeditions is £800 excluding flights which currently are just under £200 return to Gatwick.
