This is the first descent of Europe’s longest river by kayak from the source in the Valdai Hills northwest of Moscow to the river’s delta at the Caspian Sea. The Volga traverses 2300 miles (3700 km) through western Russia’s most beautiful countryside with some of the richest history known to man.

Wind In Their Sails
May 2, 2014
The team traveled 50.3 miles today. They enjoyed having the wind behind their backs today, consistently, for the first time. While the wind was wonderful, it made the river choppy so the challenges were still there.
Not a lot of new/different information to report today. Stayed tuned.
