The team paddled some amazingly varied rivers all over Venezuela, met incredibly friendly people that would always go out of their way to help and saw some unbelievable sights from continuous lightening to monkeys carrying their babies through the trees.

For their time out there they ook a range of Alpkit equipment to make the trip as comfy as possible. Such as theHunka bivvy bag and SkyeHigh down sleeping bags Plus some shiny camping bits too!
