In 2022, Karl became the first human to paddle 420 miles of the Northwest Passage on a standup paddleboard. What began as a single season expedition has evolved into something much deeper: a multi year connection with the land and people of the Arctic. 

Continuing his paddle in 2023, Karl will go from Paulatuk to Kugluktuk, Northwest Territories, another 450 mile trip, and continuing each year until reaching Pond Inlet in 2026.
