Frequently asked questions

Is this a good trip for kids?


This trip is intended for adults, but girls age 13 and older are welcome to join with an adult. Please note that Arrowhead staff are not trained childcare professionals, and you will be responsible for your children at all times.




Can you accommodate dietary restrictions?


Yes! We can accommodate almost all food allergies and dietary restrictions. After you have booked your trip, we'll send you a questionnaire where you can tell us any dietary restrictions you may have based on preference, religion, or allergies. For severe food allergies we will do everything we can to minimize the risk of cross contamination between foods, but it is never possible to remove the risk entirely. Let's chat if you have concerns. Please note, some food substitutes are significantly more expensive to purchase and prepare, and a small fee may be added to your trip to account for dietary requests.




What should I pack?


Once you have booked your trip we will send you a detailed packing list based on your trip's season and location. Our goal is to provide any specialty river or camping gear you may need, so you don't have to go out and purchase anything new for your trip. Basic items for all trips include:

  • Swimsuit
  • River clothing (quick dry items)
  • Camp clothes (warm cozy layers for cool evenings)
  • Hiking shoes
  • River sandals
  • Toiletries
  • Sunglasses and hat
  • Camera
  • Personal medications
  • Book or journal




What are you doing to protect against COVID-19?


For information on our current COVID-19 practices, please see our COVID-19 page.




Is it ok if I’ve never been camping before?


Yes! No experience is necessary for any of our trips. We love to introduce newcomers to the world of rivers and camping. You're welcome to sit back and relax while we handle everything, or we'd be happy to teach you about camp cooking, setting up a tent, basic boating skills, or whatever else you'd like to learn. (And of course there is no camping requirement for lodge-supported trips.)




Are there bathroom and shower facilities?


Lodge supported trips: All lodge rooms will have showers and toilets. On the river we use a camp toilet system called a groover, which will be set up near camp. We set up a privacy tent around the toilet and strive to give you the best view possible while you relax and take care of business. Many folks find that using the camp toilet is easier, cleaner, and far more scenic than they expected. We will also have warm water solar showers set up with privacy tents for your use. Give us a call or email with any specific questions or concerns - we want you to feel comfortable on your trip, and there are no stupid questions.




What is the cancellation policy?


For complete cancellation policy info please visit our cancellation policy page.




Will I have internet access and cell phone reception?


In some areas you may get a few bars on your phone, but you should not plan on reliable phone or internet access. In the event of an emergency, we take a satellite phone on all trips.




What are the risks I should be aware of?


On any river expedition, there are inherent risks. We work hard to plan ahead and prepare for incidents that may occur. As a participant, safety concerns you should be aware of are:

  • Water safety
  • Wildlife
  • Sunburn
  • Illness
Simple tools to manage those risks are:
  • Wear lifejackets and follow guide instruction while swimming
  • Don't touch or approach wildlife, take photos at a distance, follow guide instructions for black bear habitat.
  • Apply sunscreen early and often
  • Wash hands frequently
