Mark Kalch has made it his mission to paddle the longest river on each of the seven continents – seven rivers on seven continents. He has already completed descents of the Amazon, Volga and the Missouri-Mississippi River.
These journeys have taken Mark through a wide variety of environments, some of them very wild and remote. His journeys have also brought him into contact with diverse cultures and some amazing people. Mark often undertakes his journeys solo and is not romantic about the craft he paddles, having used white water rafts, kayaks and stand up paddle boards.
Mark joins me on this podcast to talk about his background, his journeys, his preparation and the lessons learned so far in undertaking the epic 7 Rivers, 7 Continents project, including his recent attempt on the Murray-Darling system in Australia…
