Adventurer and author Adam Shoalts will be in town Jan. 22 for a presentation at the Science North IMAX theatre.

Shoalts is the author of three books, the latest titled Beyond The Trees, which describes a four-month solo canoe journey across Canada’s Far North.

While he hails from southwestern Ontario, Shoalts moved to Sudbury in 2016 and called it home for a year-and-a-half, before embarking on his epic Arctic trip.

Shoalts began the odyssey at a remote outpost in the Yukon, travelling east — and often upriver — to Hudson Bay. En route, he encountered wolves, muskox and massive waves, not to mention ice floes that still clogged the bays of Great Bear Lake.

On Jan. 22, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., Shoalts will be sharing stories and images from that gruelling adventure with a Sudbury audience.

The event is hosted by the Rainbow Routes Association in partnership with Science North and Laurentian’s Outdoor Adventure Leadership Program.

Tickets are $10 (children under 12 get in free).
