“His latest expedition, documented in his new film ‘The Forgotten Coast,’ was inspired by over a decade of documenting Iceland’s glacial river systems and their intersection with the ocean.
Chris set out for an immersive expedition across 41 of these rivers – by connecting a 400km series of exposed sandbars that provide a barrier between the harsh waters of the north Atlantic along Iceland’s southern coast. He was armed only with a packraft and a fat bike, and was accompanied by two seasoned bike-pack/rafting veterans.
The Alpacka Raft packraft was a key ingredient for this trip, as it allowed the team to navigate these rivers safely, without adding a ton of weight. Bikerafting is still on the fringe of adventure sports, but it is gaining more traction as explorers realize the vast landscapes that packrafts unlock.”
