Rheos Gear Ambassador Martin Trahan


Martin is an adventurer from Canada who took part in the historical Canada expedition of the year 2015 «Les chemins de l’or bleu – The blue gold paths ». He paddled across Canada by canoe with five other paddlers. His expedition started on April 25th 2015 in the icy waters of Lake of Two Mountains in Montreal and ended 7000 kilometers away from its beginning journey on October 16th 2015 along the coast of the Mackenzie River in Inuvik in the Polar circle. 

This incredible six month journey entitled him to engage in a close relationship with nature, was an occasion to reconnect with the Earth and retraced the legendary explorations of many historical voyageurs such as Pierre Gaultier de la Vérendrye, Alexander Mackenzie as well as follow the traces of Canada’s First Nations.

This odyssey across Canada was imbued of three main preoccupations: the sensation of the general public to the importance of preserving our natural heritage, the richness of our nature and waters as well as the benefits of physical activity in the outdoors.
