About Jerry Kobalenko
Canada’s premier arctic traveller, Jerry has logged over 7,000 miles in the Arctic over the course of some 35 skiing, hiking and kayaking expeditions. He typically spends three months a year in a tent in the North. Both a photographer and a writer, Jerry’s work appears around the world in such publications as Canadian Geographic, Outside and Condé Nast Traveler. His literary travel book, The Horizontal Everest, “…is refreshingly free of the hubris that marks much adventure writing,” writes The New York Times Book Review. “The reader never feels assaulted by Kobalenko’s daring, only inspired by it.” His most recent book, Arctic Eden, combines Jerry’s photography, writing and travel skills. When he is not on an extreme journey, Jerry lives in Canmore, Alberta with his wife Alexandra.
