Many rivers, lakes and coasts are still unspoiled highways into the wilderness. A kajak or canoe is the ultimate way to travel in these regions, carrying gear and supplies for several months. A kajak, compared to a canoe, is a good choise if speed is required. It is also less susceptible for wind, making it more easy and safe to cross lakes or broad rivers. A disadvantage is that it takes more effort to get yourself and the equipment in and out the boat.
In regions where a good boat can’t be provided and the transport of five straight meters of plastic is impossible, one has to consider a foldable kajak or canoe. Once folded it has the size of a large backpack that can be brought anywhere on airplanes, boats, cars, and on foot. It also enables easy storage at your home.
