Tsering Dolma Gurung (54) and her husband Silnon live primarily off their own agricultural activities. Three daughters attend the local school; the eldest daughter, however, is needed to help run the household. The family's most important possessions: sheep, yaks and horses - and now a greenhouse. A meaningful project, we believe and have financed 1 of 12 greenhouses and donated an ORION II EXTREME

Even on a small scale, or in this case on small wheels, you can experience beautiful things. Especially now, when the possibilities are limited, one wants to get out there and explore the visinity. Microadventures are the order of the day. Heading out spontaneously with limited luggage and preparation. And when it's time to sleep or a nice place to stay turns up, just set up your bivouac. Photographer Norbert Blank and his partner spent five days on the road with the perfect lightweight gear ...

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 ...

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 tent for the ABC.

"After two weeks in Finland, our conclusion is quite simple: We will be back! The landscape is simply incredibly beautiful and there are still so many lakes and islands to discover. Finland became a piece of home. A place full of hidden secrets and adventures. A land to fall in love with."

Thomas Oschwald will be paddling his SUP solo and unsupported from Tromsø to the North Cape. Freezing temperatures, long nights and unknown waters will challenge him for 2-3 weeks till he reaches his goal at the North Cape on Christmas. He will need a load of lightweight gear which Exped is pleased to put at his disposal.
