I did not realise our flight was no frills. Either have something to eat at the airport before you go or buy / make sandwiches for the plane. There is a complementary 'meal', but ours consisted of a short bread biscuit, an apple and some water! There was also some salt and pepper and a plastic knife and fork - Not sure what they were for! ;)
As you will read elsewhere, all your clothes will be provided for you at Camp Oulanka. You might want a jumper just for the airport, but it is not really necessary.
Unlike other Exodus trips, you will be mostly based at the camp - There is not much travelling involved. This means long evenings after dinner and some lie-ins. There are one or two board games at Camp Oulanka, but you might consider bringing one or two of your own to keep you occupied in the evening.
When you have being trained in how to use snowshoes, you can do 'The little bear trail' on one of your free days. This trail is about 8-10km. You don't need to buy a map to follow it - It is simply a case of following trees with green markers sprayed on them.
This holiday is one of those which offers you the chance to do activities you would not get to do anywhere else.
At Camp Oulanka, you will learn to snow shoe, cross country ski, build a quinzee, climb an ice wall and bathe in a hot tub.
Unbelievably, all the snow melts in the summer and it gets quite warm. If you like it enough, you can come back in the summer and do activities like white water rafting, canoeing and practice on the climbing wall.
