General Information

All these expeditions are kayaking trips and are targeted to the whitewater kayakers who want to explore rivers in Whitewater Russia, nearly unknown in the West. All trips are either "light boat" runs (where roads allow) or self-support descents; there are no gear rafts or catarafts either. We believe an unconstrained raftless kayak group is much faster, much more flexible and is much more fun on the river.

Unlike typical single-river rafting trips, these expeditions usually link several rivers in a region. An appropriate vehicle is available through the whole journey, allowing to paddle light wherever possible and to store unnecessary gear if a self-support run is planned.

Due to their nature, all these expeditions are very much custom trips; therefore we cannot give exact itineraries, dates and prices here. All the details are highly negotiable during the preparation period. But, as a rule, the prices include all guide, accommodation, transport and food cost during the expedition time. Equipment hire can be made available on special request.

Please feel free to contact us for any further questions you may have - thank you.
