June 2023 - December 2024
Squamish to Aconcagua = Squagua
Biking, running and kayaking from Squamish, BC, Canada to the summit of the tallest mountain in South America - Mt. Aconcagua.
Outdoor Adventurers Club Founders Mark Sky and Malin Ek will complete this mission using 100% human-power: biking, walking, running & kayaking over 22,000-24,000km, through 15 countries and climbing the highest mountain in every country they pass through.
This adventure couple is risking everything for one of the most insane and ambitious adventures with the main goal of inspiring a generation of humans to chase their wildest dreams, educating about environmental issues and raising $24,000 for charities.
Bike approximately 11,000-12,000km from home in Squamish, British Columbia, Canada to Panama. Climb the highest mountain in each country we travel through:
Ocean kayak 300-350 km of the wild Caribbean Sea from Panama to Turbo, Colombia.
Is this even possible?
We will kayak through unpredictable waters, islands that may be inhabited by the indigenous Guna people, other islands that are uninhabited and… well we don’t know… after all, this is the adventure of a lifetime not a ‘trip’.
"Contrary to what most people think, there are no roads connecting Panama to Colombia - otherwise, that would be an easier option"
