Dave Ellingson, whose Mississippi River, Erie Canal, and Hudson River expeditions are chronicled in his popular "Paddle Pilgrim" books, enjoyed a spectacular month-long adventure paddling on the incomparably beautiful Sogne and Hardanger Fjords of Norway. Join Dave during his visit to REI to experience the exhilaration of 24-hour daylight in the Land of the Midnight Sun, the exhaustion of battling big waves bouncing off 1500 foot cliffs, the terror when a rudder breaks and icy water fills the cockpit, and the joy of exploring the farm his great-grandfather left to come to America in the 1850's. Enjoy the spell-binding stories and award-winning photographs which bring to life this adventure of a lifetime. Get the inspiration that you need to plan a journey of your own. His latest "Paddle Pilgrim: Kayaking the Fjords of Norway" book will be available for signing and purchase.
