behind the scenes

This group of courageous young women had to push hard and then…push even harder as the gift of the midnight sun made for endless days. With strong winds and some light rain, their goal was to paddle and hike 60km through the Arctic’s spectacular, untouched terrain. With no previous experience, they built, paddled and carried canoes, rafted through whitewater rapids, endured mosquito feasts, and laughed and sang through the week. In the end, they learned to live their leadership, to cherish the gifts of each individual and how to rise higher than they ever thought possible. Gallery coming soon!
