Our friend Bjørn Olson, who is as passionate about Alaska as anyone we’ve met, just released an exciting trailer for his upcoming film, The Friendly Arctic, that chronicles a fatbiking and packrafting trip from Kotzebue to Point Hope he took last summer with his partner Kim. You may recognize the pair from their story “Blizzard Beasts” that we published in the second issue of The Bikepacking Journal last year. Check out the trailer below, and stay tuned for news of the full film’s release later this season.
While you wait for the film’s release, check out Bjørn and Kim’s feature story, Invocation of the Arctic, that we shared back in 2017. And don’t miss Instruments of Adventure, Bjørn’s film from the same year.
