Hereby, you can find a list of necessary equipment for a week on the river. It is the adaptation „Gulyó’s list” based on thousands of years of expereinces from canoing camps complemented with a few whatnots by PLASTIC Cup.

  • Two changes of warm clothes, raincoat, extra pair of shoes, pair of waterproof shoes, cap against sunshine, bathing suit, sunglasses, binoculars, earplug (against loud music), flashlight, headlamp, machete (optional)
  • footwear that you can use in water (waterproof shoes, rubber boot, hiking sandal or similar) and does not leave your feet. In strong stream is not advised to move in bare feet on stones and sludge not knowing what is in there.
  • First aid box (analgesic, Betadine, band-aid, Fenistil, anti-allergic), sun cream, mosquito-repellent, wipes, toilet roll, (if you are on regular medication, then don’t forget your dose for 10 days!)

  • ID or passport, and don’t forget travel insurance
  • we’ll cook for you but you need to bring your cutlery (knife, spoon, fork) and plate/small bowl in that we’ll serve your dinner – non-fragile and heat-proof, metal bowls are the best, in a waste picking action we are not providing disposable items but provide options for dish washing
  • metal mug for your morning coffee
  • water-bottle
  • Waterproof packaging for your daily package (that you need on the boat), that can be either special water-proof bags, strong plastic bag or plastic barrel.
