One - ostropyramidalny from ancient collections of former owners, magnates, brought from the "warm edges". The second oak is huge and old.

Фізична підготовка та безпека

Сплав по Дністрі підійде тим, хто хоче провести час активно, проте не надто екстремально. Тури розраховані не лише на молодь, сплав підійде і сім’ям з дітьми чи активним людям старшого віку.

Перед початком сплаву усі отримують жилети. Основним плавзасобом є катамаран, рідше використовуємо рафти та байдарки. Для зручності на катамаранах є сидіння і палуба для перевезення речей. Одне місце на судні завжди відводиться інструктору.

Тури мають форму лінійного походу. Сплавляючись до точки фінішу, група щоденно долає близько 20 км. Для цього потрібно провести на катамарані чи рафті до 7 годин. Інструктор може корегувати ділянку для сплаву, збільшуючи чи зменшуючи денний кілометраж. Це залежить від погоди, рівня підготовки та бажання туристів.

Транспортування речей, проживання та гігієна

Транспортування речей
Відпочинок на Днстрі в формі сплаву не має транспортного супроводу. Речі учасників та спорядження сплавляється на катамаранах разом з групою. Для перевезення речей катамарани обладнуються палубою. Щоб особисті речі під час транспортування не намокли, потрібно їх герметизувати. З цим завданням чудово впораються цупкі поліетиленові мішки, в які потрібно помістити речі, перед тим як складати їх у сумку чи рюкзак. Загортати сумку у поліетилен не варто, його легко пошкодити під час сплаву.

Мобільний зв’язок та живлення

Територія, на якій проходять сплави на катамаранах та рафтах, охоплена мережею мобільних операторів Київстар, Vodafon, та є місця, де якість зв’язку значно знижується через природні перепони. Доступу електрики під час сплаву не буде, тож намагайтесь берегти заряд акумулятора, використовуючи телефони чи інші гаджети лиш в разі крайньої потреби.

Ночівля

Ночівля відбувається у наметах. Наші намети розраховані на 2-4 осіб і багаторазово перевірені під час грози, вітеру. Використовуємо намети таких фірм виробників як Hannah, TerraIncognita, Sportland. Для ночівлі знадобиться спальний мішок та каремат.

Гігієна

На місцях ночівлі не має обладнаних душових кабін чи туалетів. Воду для вмивання завжди можна набрати у джерелі, й при потребі трішки підігріти на вогнищі. При бажанні можна замовити похідну баню. У якості туалету використовуємо намет і щоб не захаращувати стоянки - лопатку для закопування екскрементів.

Погода

Клімат досить м’який, із помірною спекою та короткими грозовими дощами. Зазвичай тут на кілька градусів тепліше, ніж на інших територіях. Сплави по Дністровському каньйоні та Південому Бузі тривають з травня по вересень і погода може бути дуже мінливою: денна спека змінюється холодними вечорами, сонячний день може закінчитися дощем. Тому збираючись на рафтинг по Дністру у травні та червні, крім шортів та футболки треба захопити й теплі речі, влітку не варто забувати й про дощовик.
Обов'язково візьміть з собою сонцезахисний одяг. Футболка на довгий рукав, капелюх, легка сорочка та штани збережуть вас від спеки та опіків.

Подорож з дитиною та домашніми тваринами

Сплав підійде для сімей з дітьми, оскільки ріки рівнинні і практично без порогів.

Для дітей, що беруть участь у спавах по Дністру, Збручу та Південному Бугу діють знижки: для дітей віком до 6 років участь безкоштовна, для дітей віком до 12 років діє знижка 50 %.

 

Участь в турі з тваринами можлива тільки за умови, що тварина не заважатиме іншим учасникам туру, інструкторам, і не буде створювати перешкод для проведення туру. Відповідальність за безпеку учасників туру і інших осіб несуть виключно власники тварини. У разі, якщо в результаті присутності тварини власник змушений відмовитися від частини програми туру, вартість невикористаних елементів не відшкодовується.

Особливості харчування

Ми готуємо їжу в умовах похідної кухні. Страви схожі на ті, які готують в спортивних походах: каші з м'ясом, перші страви,  український борщ, салати або нарізка з сезонних овочів, багато печива. Можна спробувати  банош і куліш.

Для організованих та корпоративних груп пропонуємо додаткові страви.

Якщо ви маєте особливості харчування потрібно заздалегідь попередити менеджера з прийому замовлень та кухаря на турі. Ми можемо подати вам страву без вказаного інгридіента. Особливі продукти з вашого раціону рекомендуємо взяти з собою самостійно.

Для вегетаріанців подаємо ті ж страви, що готуються для всіх, але без м'яса, з додатковою порцією сиру.
