Open expeditions and Covid-19
We are pleased to announce that Rich Adventure will be able to resume a small number of open expeditions this summer. This page is designed to provide as much information as possible regarding what we will put in place to reduce the risk of Coronavirus to our participants and staff.
We can provide one tent per person; If you have your own tent that you can use this would be preferable to assist with disinfection/rotation of equipment (waterproof tent fabrics don't like disinfectant, so tents need to be left 5 days between use by different people).
One stove per person.
Map cases, maps and route cards will be 1 per person for walking expeditions, 1 set per boat for canoe expeditions, to allow everyone to be involved in navigation without needing to crowd around a map.
We provide all training required for novices to complete our canoe expeditions. The team will be trained in manual handling, paddling skills and rescue skills, and take part in some accompanied journeying before they are off on their own. The seats in our canoes are more than 2 metres apart, and the skills taught will be done with distancing in mind; it is possible to maintain at least 1 metre distance even whilst holding the canoe steady for someone to get in or out, and even while rescuing them from the water should they capsize.
