Winter weather is unpredictable! You may have warm days, so wear
clothes that you can layer on and off.  And throw in the swimsuit – you never know!

Assemble each person’s river gear in separate large trash bags. If it won’t fit in a large trash bag, you have packed too much! We will supply you with a large waterproof bag for sleeping bag and clothing. We also provide one waterproof bag for cameras and other small items for each two people on the trip. If you have any questions, feel free to call us.  Thank you for choosing Big Bend River Tours!
