Neil Cox, and Leanne Dyke, both members of Bristol Canoe Club, crossed Iceland with a Packraft (a type of inflatable kayak) in May 2017.
Here is Neil’s write-up, including video, and a river description.
Neil comments: “We believe this is the first recorded source-to-sea descent of the Þjórsá, with Leanne also being the first recorded woman to complete a packraft traverse of Iceland.”

A bunch of us travelled to Idaho in the USA in June 2017, for a multi-day trip down the Middle Fork of the Salmon. Here is a write-up, and some links to photos included at the end:
My photos from France are here; enjoy:
As always, the best rapids don’t have any photos. 🙁
Many thanks to Lisa F for organising last weekend’s trip to Wales. 10 of us went and we had a great time.
On Saturday we managed to paddle the Conwy (not the Fairy Glen!). Low water, but most of us had never paddled it before, some of us after trying for 20 years or so to catch it at a paddleable level.
On the Sunday everything was actually a bit low, so we went to the Tryweryn and took Lisa’s Paul down the lower Tryweryn; the others caught us up after playing on the top for a bit.
