The cabins are fully equipped to prepare your supper; you simply need to bring your food. A great way to acclimatize into wilderness!

Please remember that an A Bar Z  wilderness adventure means that your duffle is being transported by horse. Soft duffle bags are a must. We would prefer to pack two small bags rather than one very large and heavy bag. There is always some room in the wooden pack boxes should you have something that you want protected.
