ACCOMDATION

Sleeping on the Franklin usually means camping protected under a group tarp.

It doesn’t get any better than sleeping under the stars with the melodic sounds of rushing water to lull you to sleep.

GUIDED RAFTING

The Franklin River (and weather) can vary greatly from day to day – there may be times on the river when water levels come up and we may have to stay in camp for a day or 2 until it drops. Other times, the water level may get quite low and this means that we have to walk around or over certain parts of the river – this can make for some physical days on our journey. But the reality is we just never quite know how the river is feeling until we are there and on it. That being the case…adaptability is the key!

WILD SWIMS

Water is ever-present in the Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park – trickling down from mountain peaks, running into creeks that cascade and twist through the rocks, combining to make the powerful Franklin and Gordon rivers.

Swimming in the afternoon, will wash off the days aches and pains. 

HEALTHY HEARTY FOOD

All meals will be provided during the expedition.

We promise you won’t go hungry and will be unexpectedly surprised at the yummy feasts that can be whipped up on the river bank.  

 

All meals prepared and served will be vegetarian. We will cater for dietary requirements
