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.

With support from the National Geographic Global Exploration Fund and numerous sponsors, Martin Edström and his team mounted a successful expedition to Hang Son Doong in Vietnam in early 2015.
