A Journey Down the River Aare

Come along as GreatOutdoors.com editor Peter Potterfield follows the legendary River Aare as it flows from it’s headwaters in the glaciers of the Swiss Alps to Switzerland's capitol of Bern. We climb, hike, bike and raft alongside the Aare, as it changes its moods from mountain stream, to roiling whitewater to more tranquil stretches. The turquoise Aare defines Switzerland as it flows from the mountains to make its famous oxbow bend that embraces the city of Bern.

An Iceland Grand Tour

By Adam Jaquette

Photographer Adam Jaquette shows us the wild side to Iceland in this collection of images.

Iceland is a place where nature still rules and visitors must respect it."
