Earlier this month started in Norway a rather unconventional kayaking road trip. Listen to that, Olaf Obsommer, Philip Baues, Lukas Wielatt and Jens Klatt are touring Norway… so far nothing exceptional… well that is until you realize they are biking around the country, to get from one river to another!… now how ‘s that?
Norway instead of Argentina, cycle rather than car, tent instead of tidy hotel. On their trip through Norway Olaf Obsommer, Lukas Wielatt, Jens Klatt and Philip Baues are travelling from rivers to rivers – by fair means and with their kayaks on a bicycle trailer. This time it’s not only about the highest waterfall, it’s about the journey itself: the scenery, the people and about discovering simplicity.
Why Norway? Well because Norway is one of the top 3 best place to kayak rivers in the world? It is a kingdom – not only as a system of government but also in terms of kayaking. There are countless high quality rivers, and many more to discover… Not to mention a concentration of waterfalls second to none in the world!
Why biking? Olaf, Jens, Lukas and Philip want to »earn« the rivers they will paddle. True to the motto »pain is temporary, glory is forever« they know that they will face a stiff piece of work with their ambitious tour – mentally and physically.
And what about being connected? Usually we all have mobiles, e-mail, Skype – and in between we post our latest gossip on facebook (or Epic TV…). Everyone who‘s not keeping up with that is labeled as an outsider pretty fast. How cool would it be, were they thinking when they dreamt about this mission, to just pull the plug and get rid of all that stress? On their bikes Olaf, Lukas, Jens and Philip will be slow, but they will have the time to really soak up all the impressions on their way.
The mission has started on July 1st and will continue through the month of July!
Stand By… More to come on Epic TV…
