Four men and 16 wild mustangs set off on a 5000 kilometre journey across the American West from Mexico to Canada.

But can the journey help save the plight of the wild horses roaming on public lands? Only time will tell.

(2015, USA, 31 min)
Filmmakers: Red Bull Media House GmbH, Rush Sturges
Classification: Parental Guidance; sports accident, coarse language

Chasing Niagara 02 Marcos Ferro Red Bull Content Pool

When pro kayaker Rafa Ortiz decides to paddle over Niagara Falls, he sets in motion a series of events leading his team on a remarkable two-year journey from Mexican rainforest rivers to the waterfalls of the U.S. Northwest before coming to a heart-stopping climax at the iconic falls.

When choosing the winner of this category we were asked to confront what we are willing to endure as athletes to accomplish our goals. How far can we push ourselves in a pursuit? What are we willing to risk? Why? We are taken on a deeply devoted journey and faced with the realities of consequence. Ultimately, we’re offered the idea that failure is relative…and perhaps walking away can be seen as one of the highest achievements of any athlete.

— Cory Richards, jury member.

About the organizer - Pathfinder Travels

In the last 14 years, our guests have skied in mountain environments where few Scandinavians have previously skied. For example, we were the first in Scandinavia to arrange ski trips to Morocco and Iran. For most of our trips, you have to ascend the mountain on your own power with the help of climbing skins. But we also have trips where lifts will assist you in getting up, such as our trip to Iran, and in certain cases, by helicopter or snowcat. See all our ski trips here!
