Lake Iliamna, Alaska’s largest lake, is home to many native communities, the worlds largest sockeye salmon run, potential site of the controversial Pebble Mine, and the elusive Lake Monster – Illie. On a hot mid-July, Bjørn and Brent were deposited to the far shore of Cook Inlet in a landing craft cargo ship and began their human powered journey through Iliamna country to Bristol Bay, hoping to catch a glimpse of the illusive creature and slice of Alaska where monsters can still roam free.

A comment from the Vimeo on Demand page (I couldn’t agree more) [note that this film was formerly a rental; Bjorn made it a free video (above) as of Nov 29, 2016]:

Well worth the rental for an 11 minute glimpse into another inspirational Alaskan adventure! Strong work by Bjørn and Brent. The amazing imagery, time-lapse sequences, Bjørn’s narration, and the original music track all combine to tell the story of this journey. The film portrays a creative Alaskan approach to ultra-light wilderness travel, combining fat bikes and packrafts. Thanks for the inspiration!
