Kayaking is a wonderful way to experience nature in its purest form and work out at the same time- a combination we appreciate a lot. During our daily cycling rambles, we don’t use our upper bodies much. Therefore we grabbed the chance without hesitation to do some cross sport.

Thanks to the Loca Pirogue team who equipped us with a tandem kayak and all the necessary gear, we were able to pedal, this time using our arms, up and down a creek through the jungle.
The change was even more exciting due to the reason that we were able to switch places and enjoy the trip from different perspectives (especially for Marta who sat now in front).

The jungle in French Guyana is certainly a great place to wonder around the rivers, streams and lakes to admire the wildlife. Kayaking through the vast rainforest and admiring various kinds of nature, animals + remote wilderness is an experience everyone should seek for. It is also a wonderful physical exercise and a great to work on your teamwork. It’s hard to explain how extraordinary the feeling is to pedal up a forest creek in the pouring rain and to love every moment of it. We really recommend to everyone to try this way of exploring nature. In fact we encourage you to try kayaking anywhere. It’s a wonderful, fun and very interesting way to spend time with family, friends or your partner. It’s incredible how fulfilling one day of kayaking can be and what great memories and achievements it can bring along. Do it- it’s regrets-proof!

We are Marta and Ben, a Polish-German couple currently traveling the world. We’ve met last year, both with specified and fixed plans, following two different paths. And even though it seemed impossible, we decided to be together against all (so many!) odds. Since then we travel together, share big and small dreams, live great moments and face troubles. We laugh loud and argue loud, we cry, smile, party and have fun together each day. We live in constant need to visit new places. We share the urge to discover, learn and understand new cultures, traditions and customs. We crave to see all world’s wonders. We want to meet beautiful people and get to know their stories. We would like to listen to local music, taste delicious food, swim in different seas and sleep under different skies. We wish to speak various languages but sometimes just stay speechless. We want an adventure. Our dream and plan is to travel from Argentina to Alaska on a tandem bicycle and visit all the countries of South, Latin and North America. This means that we are going to cover the distance of 30 000 km in three years time.
