Iceland Breakthrough--adventure at its finest 4 Jan 2002
By Rodney Thompson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book tells the story of twelve men who set out to follow the Icelandic river Jokulsa-a-Fjollum from source to the sea just below the artic circle, a distance of 200 km. What makes it an incredible journey is the use of kayaks and microlight aircraft to traverse ice , rivers, and waterfalls through the icelandic wilderness. Starting as a hot spring deep in ice caves under a glacier, the river is considered one of the most difficult in the world. Iceland itself is a geolocical infant, wild and beautiful in its synthesis of volcanic fire and glacial ice. A bold and imaginative adventure in a wonderful and unappreciated wilderness.
