Water, waves, and a lot of wind: Welcome to the world of Freya Hoffmeister
For many years, the renowned expedition paddler has been one of the most successful extreme athletes in the world. She record-circumnavigated Iceland (2007), New Zealand South (2007), and Australia (2009). Freya started 2011 on her second continent, a project that no one had ever tried - rounding South America in a sea kayak.
It took Freya four years to complete the journey, stretching from the Panama Canal to Cape Horn, over thirteen countries, 27.000 km, and crossing the equator twice. Thrilling adventures, breathtaking nature observations, bizarre animal encounters, and the fight with the relentless elements of life and death fill this book from the first to the last page of her fascinating travel report.
She got rewarded for this unique life achievement with the World Paddle Award, European Adventurer of the Year, and the National Geographic Adventurers of the Year.

Freya Hoffmeister (1964) is a former gymnast, bodybuilder, and skydiver living in Husum/ Germany. When not paddling, she looks after her two Janny's Eis Caf's or works as a motivational speaker and book author.
