The Expedition went to the amazing South American country, Venezuela.  Based around 3 locations; the steep, boulder rivers in Merida, the 33,000 cumecs Rio Orinoco monster and finally the “land of waterfalls” the Gran Sabana.  Each area offered a totally different style of rivers which made the trip so varied and exciting.  Have a look at the Team Blog for more stories about each of the amazing destinations. Check out the full length video of their trip.

BUKE 2011: Venezuela- Long from Joe Rea-Dickins on Vimeo.

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!
