Home for me for the past 20 years is the banks of the Jordan River, where I run a local operation in the winters and spring. I love this river.
My favourite style of rafting is remote expedition style rafting trips like the Zanskar, Tambopata, Tamur. Places that are dominated by nature and not man.
I started working with Water By Nature 3 years ago, bringing my clients from back home and working with best operator in the business.
Best river meal is definitely “Matfune”- stuffed chicken, wrapped in aluminium foil and buried in a pit covered with charcoal.
I love “Dolor De Muelas” on the Apurimac river, and for sure “Gulliver’s Travels” is one of my favourites.
On expeditions i always carry a saw, always comes handy for the fires at night.
Being a full time dad and still able to live the the lifestyle i love
Running the Rufiji river in Tanzania was probably the most epic, yet scary river trip of my life. 8 days crossing 20,000 hippos with 1 full attack, a ripped raft and 16 hours of repair.
There are a few rafting trips that i really loved that unfortunately lost to dams: The Omo, The Coruh to name a few. I think the Zanskar has a good combination of whitewater, remoteness, and one hell if a spectacular canyon.
The Watut is the next river for sure on my bucket list
