Video: Nouria Newman Makes First Female Descent of Stikine

A couple of weeks back I posted a wonderful video of a team of kayakers running the Stikine River in  British Columbia. In the late summer, and heading into the fall, the Stikine becomes a paddler’s dream, with fantastic whitewater to test their skills. Recently, French kayaker Nouria Newman became the first woman to complete a full descent of the river, completing all 45 miles of the descent without a portage. In the video below, she shares that experience and takes us through one of the most iconic paddles in all of North America.
