"After his Master’s Degree in Environmental Management, Yuri worked as a sustainability counselor for companies and the government. He now runs his own business and performs long solo expeditions in the northern wilds of Siberia and Alaska. His exciting stories, stunning visuals and insightful analysis of the human being in relationship to itself, our modern society and nature are a source of inspiration and provide plenty of food for thought.
In Siberia he succeeded to make the first solo descent ever by kayak of the Kotera, Muya, Angara, Vitim and Indigirka Rivers. More recently he travelled 3 ½ months through Alaska by sea kayak, along one of the most dangerous seas in the world, and upstream the Noatak River far into the Brooks Range. Afterwards three records where to be broken in a row. In the process Yuri has become an experienced speaker, filmmaker and writer."
Yuri har blant annet brukt teltene Helsport Patagonia og Helsport Ringstind Light, samt soveposen Helsport Kongsfjorden.
