Clothing and equipment
Each participant will be provided the necessary clothing and equipment for a safari;
WINTER: thermal overalls, snowmobile footwear, woolen socks, headwear, gloves, scarf and snowmobile helmet.
SUMMER: rain coats, rubber boots, wollen socks, river rafting helmets and life vests.
Your own clothing, which can be worn under the overall, should be thin, but warm and comfortable. You are also welcome to leave your jackets etc. for storage in our office for the duration of the safari.
Locals' hints how to dress:
- Dress in layers. Use many thin, warm layers rather than afew thick layers. It will insulate better and allow you to strip offlayers if the temperature climbs. Staying dry is the top priority.
- Add a first layer consisting of acomfortably light fabric that will remove the sweat away from your body. Avoid pure cotton, linen, or othersimilar materials, however, because these fabrics retain moisture and will chillyou. The best material is synthetic fiber.
- Next layer should be a knit sweater/sweatshirt/fleece.This layer is to keep you warm.
- Thicksocks (best thing would be to wear 1 thin and 1 or 2 thick pair of socks on topof each other)
- Thinunder gloves (best material is fleece)
