What happens to a couple when the go on expedition together? Love!

Once upon a time there was a dragon who had lived for hundreds of years in a small castle in the Glarus mountains. The locals lovingly called him Wisli dragon. Every winter he watches over the Raminer river and makes sure that the Tschingelböcke with their pointed horns don't come down into the valley...and if hasn't melted, you'll find him this winter directly behind the Wisli forest in his castle. Thomas Oschwald built it, captured it in photo and video and of course spent the night in it with his partner ...

From April to November of 2018, a team aims to paddle in an open canoe across America; from the Pacific Ocean in Astoria (Oregon) to the Atlantic Ocean at the tip of Florida. As you can imagine, this trip will take a grueling 210 days to complete the 4750 miles from coast to coast. This is the expedition of a lifetime. 

What if I told you of a place that is 2 hours from the biggest city in Canada, yet boasts a stretch of land nearly 80km in all directions which sees fewer human visitors in the winter than the parks moose population? A place where you can truly immerse yourself in the elements and find piercing winter solitude so quiet that it makes your ears ring? That place is called Algonquin Park and this year, to celebrate its 125th anniversary, my friend and I took the trip of a lifetime to trek across its frozen expanse in the dead of winter. We, Ryan Atkins, Buck Miller and Eric Batty want to invite you along on our 5th (of 10) day of travel through the park.

For five weeks Thomas Oschwald paddled through the wilderness of Finland, hiked through endless forests and slept under the open skies. And then, winter arrived and it became bitterly cold. His video, part 2 ..

On October 14th Stephan Siegrist (SUI), Julian Zanker (SUI), and Thomas Huber (GER) stood atop the granite giant in Kashmir. They are the fourth team that was able to climb this mountain via a spectacular line. Their goal was the yet unclimbed central north-west face of Cerro Kishtwar. Exped supported the successful team with four tents, two Orion II Extreme for the BC and two Polaris single wall tents for the ABC.

In Inuktitut, the word “ikivuq” means “get in”. The six canoe enthusiasts who got together to form the Ikivuq team had a dream of navigating through the little-known waters of the Lestage River – where only the most experienced Inuit hunters have ventured – to map out the terrain and share their experiences with the rest of the world. It’s all about “living the land”, as they say up North, and exploring the wide expanse of tundra that’s both beautiful and fragile, yet also arid and hostile.
