Welcome to A Superior Adventure! We are Matt and Hannah Abbotts and we’d like to share our adventures with you. Currently, we are in the planning stages of a kayak circumnavigation of Lake Baikal. This trip is planned for the summer of 2012 and will be a sister trip to our 2009 kayak circumnavigation of Lake Superior. Lake Baikal, located in south central Siberia, is the largest lake in the world by volume which made it an ideal follow up to kayaking around the largest lake in the world by surface area (Lake Superior). If you have questions/comments/support to lend to the planning process, we’d love to hear from you!

Our main goal is to bring you a regularly updated account of our adventures through our photos and daily journals. Seeing as we are currently in between trips you might want to stop in and check out our day to day exploits at our “daily blog” where you can find reports from our shorter trips, some gear reviews, and a little bit of interesting stuff we’ve come across. If you just can’t wait for our Baikal trip, you can try to get your paddle fix from our Lake Superior circumnavigation content. If you just can’t get enough of us or you’re more of a hiker/backpacker you can always peruse some of our past trips under the “Previous Adventures” tab below.
