Crazy Adventures/ Wild Shores In 1977 Nigel Foster and Geoff Hunter became the first to kayak around Iceland. They accomplished their shoestring venture before modern conveniences such as dry suits, cellphones, or the World Wide Web, exploring a country of just 222,000 people. Now as Iceland’s tourism explodes, Foster steps back to a time before the ring-road was paved. For context, 1975 saw the end of the Vietnam war, and the founding of Microsoft. Apple was founded in 1976, when Britain finally agreed Iceland’s demands for a 2-mile exclusive fishery zone, ending a bitter cod war. Iceland by Kayak offers a refreshing insight into 1970s style kayaking adventure. It is a story of learning, accepting, believing, taking life one day at a time, with no certainty of outcome. It is travel enriched by precious encounters with characterful Icelanders.
