Kayaking around South Georgia

People sometimes comment on the exotic places I have visited, or the out-of-the-way trips I have made. They may appear wild to many, but as far as I am concerned they’re strolls around the block compared to the solo sea kayaking expeditions my friend Hayley Shephard comes up with. She was the first woman to solo kayak around Vancouver Island and Haida Gwaii (Queen Charlottes), and is currently planning the first ever solo circumnavigation of South Georgia in a sea kayak.

Capt. James Cook described South Georgia as “a land doomed to perpetual fridgidness, whose savage aspects I have not words to describe.” That alone is reason enough for me to immediately book a flight there!

Hayley takes some amazing pictures as well.

BC Forest Service information

My friend and fellow explorer Jason found some great links to information on BC Forest service campsites.
