We stopped our business in October 2007, to take some time off for traveling the world.
The first of March, 2008 we took off for our fist leg, a 500 km adventure on snowshoes. leaving from the front door of our house, finishing a few weeks later in Carmacks (Yukon Territory). After the breakup of the Yukon river, we continued from Carmacks, this time by canoe. Paddling the entire river, 3500km, all the way to the Bering sea, where we arrived 42 days after leaving Carmacks.
After a short break, our travels continued in the fall of 2008. We cycled 100 days from Southern France to Cairo, going through central and eastern Europe, The Middle East and Egypt. We cycled in 14 countries and on 3 different continents during this trip!
Our Christmas was spent with family in France after which we left Europe to spent some time in our home, 12km from a small village called Atlin, in Northern British Columbia. We have ever since been busy planning our next adventure.
We were thinking of leaving from France and either cycle west Africa (France, Spain, Portugal, Marocco, Mauritania, Mali and Senegal) or cycle northern Europe (France, Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Iceland).
After lots of research we decided to take the Northbound route.
We are leaving the first week of May, and will cycle through France, Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, Sweden and Norway, to reach the North cape (the most northern point of Norway). Once we reach the North Cape we will fly to Iceland, and cycle in Iceland.
While travelling we will try to update our website every week to keep you up to date to what is happening!
