Feb 2016 Jaime’s Kayak Svalbard North American Talk Tour

01 Talk Intro

Jaime is on a tour giving his mixed media talk about the Ice Bear and Islands team’s world first sea kayak circumnavigation of Svalbard Archipelago Norway.
2300km’s, 71 days, 3000 Polar Bears, 160km’s of unbroken Glacial cliffs.
“The talk that must be heard” ~ Jeff Allen UK
The name of the expedition, ‘Ice Bears and Islands’, refers to the many polar bears that roam in this desolate wilderness, also known as ‘isbjørn’ in Norwegian and literally translating to ‘Ice Bear’, polar bears were also a huge (literally and figuratively) hazard on the trip.
All past attempts at the circumnavigation were brought to a sudden end: one team had their kayaks smashed to pieces; another was trapped by fast moving pack ice, and the most recent and horrific being two Norwegian paddlers who were attacked by a polar bear.
“The images alone had me on the edge of my seat, and the presentation was a great mix of funny, scary and honest… I loved every moment” ~ Mia Kulseng Norway
