Hurtigruten and Visit Norway are supporting adventurer Dave Cornthwaite on his latest World Record attempt for the longest journey by Schiller waterbike.

Since the start of August and throughout September, Cornthwaite will be navigating his way along 1,500 miles of Norwegian coastline following Hurtigruten’s ‘Express Route’ from Kirkenes to Bergen.

Anthony Daniels, the cruise line’s head of sales for UK and Ireland, said: “We’ve been operating along the Norwegian coastline for almost 125 years and are thrilled to be supporting Dave’s incredible journey along one of our most loved routes. Encouraging people to discover their inner explorer is at the heart of what we do, and we believe Dave is the perfect advocate to inspire others to try something new and experience Norway all year-round.”

The journey will be Cornthwaite’s 14th adventure on ‘Expedition1000’, a series of twenty-five journeys, each with a minimum of 1,000 miles, using a different form of non-motorised transport. Previous modes of transport have included; a skateboard, a tandem, a trike, a whike, a bikecar, an eliptiGO, and a swifty scooter with more than 21,000 miles already covered.

Catherine Foster, Country Manager for Visit Norway, UK and Ireland, commented: “We are so excited about this challenge of Dave’s and really look forward to following his progress down our long, spectacular coast. He will be travelling through the Arctic waters in the north, along the beautiful Trøndelag coast in the middle of Norway and finishing up in the spectacular fjord region in the south west. Travelling by waterbike such a long distance is going to be tough, but we hope the fresh air and spectacular nature helps power his journey south.”
