Hi, my name is Mikel Sarasolaafter being a member of the national canoeing team and Kayak Slalom Junior champion of Spain, I embarked on different adventures around the world, descending the waters of the wildest rivers and the snowy slopes of great mountains.
Mikel Sarasola (Donostia, 1987) is a whitewater kayaker who, after beginning by competing in the Olympic slalom category, where he was champion of Spain and a member of the national team for several years, decided to put his kayak in a van and head off around the world in search of stimulating challenges and new experiences. Spurred on by his curiosity and the fact that he is a natural dreamer, as well as his tireless paddling, the journey has taken him to places as remote and evocative as Greenland, Pakistan, Peru, Patagonia and Nepal. Always in search of difficulty, of an unknown and wild river, of turbulent waters to descend and explore; but also of new and extreme challenges, like the descent in kayak of the snowy slopes of the Pyrenees at 70 km/hour. Wherever the word adventure is expressed to the full.
