2 Spaniards and the Mackenzie River - Mission Accomplished

Over the last two years along with Jackson Kayaks, Kokatat Watersports Wear and JK dealer Undercurrents in Calgary, AB I have helped support some very adventurous paddlers from Spain.  Carlos A. and Carlos R. LOVE paddling in Canada, LOVE the Jackson Kayak Journey and LOVE staying warm, dry and a float with their Paclite Pullovers and
Kokatat PFDs

Pike's Paradise - Arctic Grayling on the line

There most recent adventure took them to the Mackenzie River, the largest and longest river system in Canada.  The 2 Carlo's paddled 1950 km (over 1200 miles) in 42 days starting on the Great Slave Lake and ending in the Beaufort Sea.

During there adventure they paddled in all types of water conditions, saw wildlife, fished to their hearts content and experienced the awesome beauty of endless days in the North.  In addition there was the unforgettable Aurora Borealis aka Northern Lights.
