Hello! We are Ville and Kristen Jokinen, married adventure travelers and international speakers. We met in 2008 in Vietnam, thru-hiked the Pacific Crest Trail in 2011, got hitched in 2013 and went on to ride bicycles for nearly two years and 18,000 miles from Prudhoe Bay, Alaska to Ushuaia, Argentina.
Our Mission As Speakers

Our Upcoming Book
It wasn't the altitude sickness in the Peruvian Andes or the vicious dog attack. It wasn't the brush with a mother bear or the persistent deluge on the coastal U.S. It wasn't even the Patagonian winds or grueling 80-mile stretches in the scorching Argentinian desert. In the end, what nearly ended a two-year, over 18,000-mile bicycle adventure from Prudhoe Bay, Alaska to Ushuaia, Argentina wasn't one of tragedy or grit. It was a mosquito.
