The Forgotten Coast

31 mins


From the seats of small aircraft, photographer Chris Burkard has been inspired by over a decade of documenting Iceland’s glacial river systems and their intersection with the ocean. Armed only with fat bikes and inflatable rafts, Burkard and bike-pack and rafting veterans Steve “Doom” Fassbinder and Cameron Lawson set out for an expedition across 41 of these rivers. They connect a 400-km series of exposed sandbars that provide a barrier between the harsh waters of the North Atlantic along Iceland’s southern coast.
