“Once in a lifetime experiences”
The exploration of the giant river systems of Asia, Africa and Latin America is one of the last big adventures on earth. In a world that is running out of “classical” adventures, river expeditions are the response to the individual`s desire to find uniqueness, unlimited horizons and special and lasting experiences.
UPDATE: Lena River Expedition [POSTPONED]
The Lena River Expedition that was planned for 2021 has been postponed to a future date (More details available on the Lena River Expedition Page)
But all is not lost ….
ANNOUNCING : Mackenzie River Expedition 2022
Navigating 1738 KM in Canada’s North West Territories with inflatable boats from Great Slave Lake to the Arctic Ocean.
THE MIGHTY MACKENZIE IS CANADA’S COOLEST WATERWAY. It’s the King of Rivers that surges through centuries and courses through a culture. It links mountain and sea. Past and future. Man and beast. And when you gaze upon it, or ride its mighty currents, its spirit will flow through you, too. Up here, it is called the Deh Cho – the great river. For the Dene of the Northwest Territories, since time immemorial, it has been a superhighway, grocery store, and church.
Even today, this is the river that weaves the North together. It is the longest waterway in Canada, at the heart of an ecosystem and world-view. Hunters and fishermen still travel its channels. Fish throng its depths. Moose and musk oxen tread its banks. Villages flank its shores. And cargo-barges and ice-roads traverse it, bridging vast distances and different worlds.
Years of experience leading expeditions on some of the remotest rivers in the world gives Andy a unique perspective on river travel.
If you are looking for unique trips away from the usual tourist trails, Andy knows the best out of the way places to explore.

Andy is a traveller, sailor, boat racer and explorer. After spending many years on sea, he got exposed to rivers and people living on rivers. Ever since, he has organized and lead river expeditions on major rivers across the world.
The objective of Rib Expedition & Adventure is the worldwide organization and realization of river expeditions with rigid inflatable boats, so called ribs. The expeditions lead into regions and rivers where navigation with regular vessels is impossible.
The initial expeditions will be carried out by a small and experienced core team including some journalists (film, photo, print) who will document the trip. Subsequently their accounts will be published through all appropriate media channels. In addition to the core team of professionals, two or three guests may join this trip.
After the first exploration follow-up expeditions are planned with a greater number of participants. The trips planned have their roots in historical undertakings. They mirror the expeditions dared by 18th century explorers and lead into the deep jungle and untouched regions which have remained almost unchanged since the days of pioneering.
