We live for paddling. Anton Prijon sen. made history in canoeing. He was not only one of the best and most successful kayak athletes in his day, he was also an exceptionally gifted tinkerer and constructor of kayaks. In the meantime, the small workshop developed into a world-renowned kayak- and paddle building company. More than ever, we are now a sports-mad company and family and you can recognize our enthusiasm in our products. At Prijon, we put a great value on all of our kayaks being manufactured by hand without piecework. We envision ourselves as a modern organization, which knows...

We are the expeditioners Cristian Donoso (Chile) and Roger Rovira (Catalunya) and we paddled 600 Km (324NM) through the Bernardo O’Higgins National Park, in Patagonia, south of Chile. With an extension of 3,525,901 Ha, this is the biggest National Park in Chile and the tenth biggest in the World. Its coast is crowned by the Andes, and the vast Campo de Hielo Patagonico Sur (Southern Patagonian Ice Field), makes the access from land very difficult. In its middle area, an extensive labyrinth of channels and fjords comes from the glaciers to the Pacific Coast, making boats go through traps and...

The following days, we got closer to our main purpose, the mysterious oceanic coast of Bernardo O’Higgins National Park. The curiosity and anxiety increased between us as we got closer. Before getting there, we had to cross the wide channels of Messier and Fallos. The strong currents made planning especially relevant. 12 days after leaving Tortel, we paddled along the channel Octubre, the last one before reaching the open ocean. We observed the changing landscape, wider, with more sparse vegetation, a huge marine environment. Suddenly, two penguins jumped in front of our kayaks, nimbly...

A round trip on Dahme and Spree between Berlin and Spreewald Text/Photos: Sebastian Rapp If you ask me why kayak touring is such an amazing recreation, I cannot answer this question in just a few words. You come to experience that much when you’re on the way with your touring kayak. For me it’s a triad out of different waters, camping and active recovery in nature. The Märkisch Circuit is prime example for this. The best way to paddle the Märkisch Circuit is counterclockwise. By doing so, you spend less time paddling against the stream. Normally the stream isn’t too strong, but it’s still...

As the Märkisch Circuit is a round trip, you can start it nearly anywhere along the route. There are also several bivouac places and campsites, sometimes more, sometimes less. The route frequently goes past cities and villages, where you can stock up with food. But most of the time you’re undisturbed and meet only few men. Especially at the point where there is no watersports and activities or professional shipping, it is very peaceful and you have all the time in the world to enjoy the nature. This pertains to 60 to 70 percent of the trip, which you can even expand when you add the...
