Exploring Nicaragua’s Most Remote Coast by Kayak

Far beyond the glorified surf spots, volcano hikes, and coffee plantation tours is a 26-hour-long bus ride to Nicaragua’s Mosquito Coast, a Caribbean region that’s rarely visited. For my wife, Claire Cripps, and me, the idea to explore this region began in 2015 after we completed a packrafting journey down the Rio Coco, which is the longest river in Central America and flows through the heart of mosquito country in Honduras and Nicaragua.

Traveling across the Arctic isn’t easy no matter how you do it, but Palmer, Alaska-based photographer Fredrik Norrsell and his wife, Nancy Pfeiffer, thought the winter landscape of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, north of the Brooks Range, would make for a nice ride.

The Great Winter Escape: Fat Bikes in Baja

Leaving behind one of the best Rocky Mountain winters in recent history, we traded ski boots for fat bikes in February and headed south. Twelve days, 283 miles, and more than a few beach beers later, we completed a section of the Baja Divide called the Cape Loop, which we started at San José del Cabo. Here are some highlights from our trip.
