EC Stories Bristol 6 April: Canoeing the Yukon with Chris Lucas

Get inspired at our EC Stories events. This month we’ll hear from Chris Lucas, whose epic adventure saw him paddle 500 miles by canoe in the Canadian Yukon.  

Meet like-minded people. Get inspired. Everyone welcome. Thursday 6 April.

“It all began with a throw away comment, “Don’t suppose I’ll do that now”. My dad couldn’t have known that saying those words would start a process that would lead us four years later to be losing altitude at speed in a Beaver floatplane, canoe strapped beneath, bearing down on a tiny lake, deep in the Canadian Yukon.”

Filming the month-long adventure as he went, Chris paddled a 17 foot open canoe 500 miles down white water mountain rivers, finishing inside the Arctic Circle.

Join us in Bristol on 6 April to hear all about Chris and his father’s adventure. Get a unique insight into a father/son relationship on a grand adventure, wildlife sightings and stunning photography.
