Video: Kayaking the Verzasca in Switzerland

Here’s a fun little paddling video that features kayakers Sam Sutton and Sven Lämmler taking on the wild whitewater found on the narrow confines of the Verzasca River in Switzerland. It gives us a great view of this roller coaster ride through the Swiss mountains. The Verzasca is a mere 30 km (18.6 miles) in length, but it offers plenty of excitement for such a short river. Looks like a blast!

Video: Kayaking Kerela, India

Earlier this year, kayakers Sam Sutton, Bradely Lauder, and Mire Kodada traveled to the remote Kerela region of India to explore opportunities to go kayaking in the largely unexplored and untouched part of that country. What they found was some of the best whitewater that they had ever seen, on rivers that few – if any – other paddlers had ever descended. The video below shares some of that…

Video: The Snows of the Nile

This is a fantastic short film that introduces viewers to the Rwenzori Mountains of Uganda, a series of 5000 meter peaks that rise up from the African plains. These peaks were once covered in some of the few equatorial glaciers that exist on the planet, but those glaciers are in rapid retreat as climate change and global warming impact the environment there. In the short documentary, two…
