Scandinavia circumnavigation 2008
In March 2008, sponsored sea kayaker Jeff Allen set off on an attempt to circumnavigate Scandinavia. Starting in Gothenburg, Sweden, Jeff along with Mark Schoon from America, kayaked northwards, in an attempt to reach the distant town of Kirkenes, a small Norwegian port which lies close to the Russian border. More than 60% of Norway's long and exposed coastline lies above the Arctic Circle and this will be just phase one of a two phase expedition to paddle and ski the majority of Scandinavia. As well as being an incredible adventure Jeff and Mark hope to raise both monies and awareness for two charities. The Ovarian Cancer Action and the Children's Hospice South West Precious Lives Appeal. You can follow the expeditionhere.
