This is an unsupported human-powered continuous expedition across the world—from Norway to New Zealand. From North Cape in the very north of Scandinavia to Bluff at the southernmost tip of the South Pacific mainland.
As we poured over maps trying to decide on what long-distance trail to do next, nothing really felt like the obvious choice. With such a big and diverse world out there—how on earth do you choose? Besides, one of the biggest downsides to thru-hikes is that they always end too soon. We wanted to find a project that not only inspired our adventurous souls, but one that would last a really long time as well.
So, since we literally come from opposite ends of the world, why not walk the distance? From Karma’s home in the north to Scott’s home the south, an epic 5+ year long expedition! The moment the idea was voiced out loud, we knew it was the right thing for us to do! Six weeks later we had sold everything that did not fit into our backpacks and we were on our way.
Of course there are some logistics to work out, but we will just tackle them as we go. Nothing is impossible if you are just flexible enough. By human powered we mean land based and primarily walking. But due to forces out of our control, such as visa time restrictions, we may need to get creative or choose to cycle or paddle parts along the way too. We aim to stay off roads as much as possible and hike trails and nature paths wherever we can.
This is an expedition without all the answers at the start and one without an end date. Just the way we like it… driven by the curiosity to explore, not the end destination.
Welcome to follow us on our epic journey!
