Nearly 5 years in the making – I’m excited to share my next project:
Expedition Northeast – a continuous crossing of northeast Canada never before attempted in modern history.
1 Year / 4 seasons, roughly 3800km. Departing from Hudson Bay this July.
Canoeing, snowshoeing, backpacking, rafting. Upriver, downriver, across lakes, ponds, ocean, hills, valleys, bogs, barrens, and mountains. I will be posting GPS updates en route. Saku will join me for the warmer seasons. During the sub-arctic winter, I’ll likely be solo.
Biggest objective is to complete the route in 12 months by my own power while experiencing and documenting all 4 northern seasons. I want to live simply and in harmony with nature. This has been a dream of mine ever since I struck ice in northern Quebec in 2018. I told myself the next time freeze-up comes, I’ll be ready to continue on throughout winter. It is not redemption. It is not to prove anything. It is a new journey. I just love the wilderness and all the exciting challenges that come along with it. I wanted to start further north above the treeline on the tundra of the Ungava Peninsula and include Newfoundland. Of course, I also want to bring everyone along and get you fired up for the outdoors.
I am hungry and motivated. Here we go.
More details coming soon including live and online presentations.
