In July 2018, we will start a bikepacking trip from above the Arctic Circle in Prudhoe Bay, Alaska.


We are Adam and Julie, thirty-somethings from Switzerland, the UK and the US. Our goal is to discover the world and ourselves through adventures on roads less travelled.

In 2012 we biked from New Zealand to Switzerland with a traditional bike touring set-up. In 2018 we will be bikepacking  (using more rugged bikes) so we can stay off pavement and on mountain backroads as much as possible.
