Travel Stories From Adventurers With a Green Heart


Bikepacking the world

About this session:

In this session we get to talk with some super inspirational travelers who are all about finding sustainable ways to travel. Do you also love to travel, but you also want to take care of our beautiful planet? Tune in and get inspired! 

Our speakers are travelling the world in the most adventurous, challenging and sustainable way: by bike. Stefanie and Niels started their journey in March and cycled from Belgium to Scandinavia. Their next stop was Iceland, and now they are on their way from Vancouver to South-America. Traveling by bike not only gives them the chance to see places that you normally would never come, it is also budget friendly and the most sustainable way of travelling.
