Trevor Frost Tracks the Last Navigators of the Sahara and the Outback
Posted on May 7, 2014

Chambers Pillar, a famous landmark in the desert of Central Australia, was used by European explorers as a navigation aid.

Eddie Bauer adventure travel guide Trevor Frost has been around the globe a few times. Whether it’s chasing orangutans in the rainforest of Sumatra, filming orcas beach hunting in Argentina, or journeying through remote lands as part of his Last Navigators project, the new-world voyager and National Geographic Young Explorer seeks adventure in its truest form. While working to track him down for this blog post, in fact, Frost emerged from the jungle with this update: “I’ve been in the rainforest of Sumatra for the last month chasing orangutans for Nat Geo magazine, hence the slow reply. Check out nat geo instagram to see me wearing EB travex gear crossing a big jungle mud pit.”

Chris Korbulic Captures Epic Images of India: The Final Gallery
Posted on May 2, 2014

Sunset reload on the Brahmaputra ferry crossing.

We’ve been publishing consecutive galleries of Chris Korbulic’s experience on the Siang and Siyom, but the third and final installment in his Epics of India series is, we think, the best. Our reasoning is that—sure the action is always impressive—but this final gallery focuses on the return, the culture and the adventure travel aspect of one of the most populated nations on earth.

Chris Korbulic Captures Epic Images of India, and Pedro Oliva, Round Two
Posted on April 30, 2014

Star shot on the Siyom

On Monday, we ran the first in a series of three galleries from Chris Korbulic, Ben Stookesberry, and Pedro Oliva’s recent expedition to Northeast India. It’s an epic but it had a purpose. “It was all filmed for another season of our Kaiak TV show in Brazil with Pedro Oliva,” emphasizes Korbulic. “Please do mention Pedro!”

Chris Korbulic Captures Epic Images of India: First Gallery
Posted on April 28, 2014

Any gallery we get from Chris Korbulic is epic. The places, the people, the imagery, and always a stunning star-speckled time-lapse, all make for a transporting viewing experience. But Korbulic’s photo submission from his recent expedition with Ben Stookesberry and Pedro Oliva to Arunachal Pradesh in Northeast India to run the Siang and Siyom Rivers was one of his best. So we decided to break it up into three stunning galleries and asked for a summary from the man himself about his Epics of India series.

Kyle Miller Makes a Nordic Splitboard Stopover in Iceland
Posted on April 25, 2014

Sunset Descent

When Kyle Miller first pitched us on funding his airfare for a split-and-boat biathlon of a traverse in Norway’s Lofoten Islands, it sounded like a very epic-worthy expedition. What we didn’t predict was that our favorite splitboard vagabond would use a free, seven-day Icelandair stopover on that international ticket to explore the small volcanic island nation, where steep Icelandic lines rise from isolated fishing villages and Arctic Circle fjords such as Ólafsfjör∂ur and Siglufjör∂ur on its rugged northern and western coasts. But we often underestimate Kyle Miller’s combination of grassroots resourcefulness and hunger for adventure in a new mountain range.

Caroline George Recaps the Romance of Climbing Fantasia per Ghiacciatore
Posted on April 24, 2014

Sunrise in the Alps

For most of us, even if we climb, a romantic outing with our significant other rarely involves sustained mixed multi-pitch climbs to 14,000-foot summits with sketchy rappels and brutal slogs back to the car. But for UIAGM guide Caroline George, aggressive ice climbing and overnighting at an Italian hut with a husband just back from summiting Fitz Roy is a bit like movie night at the Cineplex for the rest of us.

New Glacial Balance Film Tracks the Local Impacts of Melting Andean Glaciers
Posted on April 22, 2014

For anyone who makes their living in the mountains, it is no shock that our glaciers are melting. We hear it from our guides, our athletes, our photographers, our filmmakers and our brand partners, but putting the story in a local context is a tough task even for the most accomplished storytellers. Yet Ethan Steinman, and the folks behind Glacial Balance, have done just that in a film that travels from Colombia to Ecuador to Argentina along the spine of the Andes, getting to know the locals who are the first impacted by the melting glacial reserve.
