Adam Shoalts is a professional explorer. On his expeditions, he explores remote areas where no known expeditions have previously ventured. He has made the first exploration in recorded history of four different rivers. In 2013, he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Canadian Geographical Society (RCGS) for “extraordinary contributions to geography” and presented the Society’s expedition flag to His Excellency David Johnston, Governor General of Canada and patron of the RCGS. In 2014, Shoalts led an Explorers Club Flag Expedition, sponsored by Mountain Equipment Co-op.
When not on major expeditions, Shoalts frequently undertakes smaller adventures, writes on a variety of topics, does archaeology, and works towards his Ph.D, specializing in interactions between aboriginal people and explorers.Read More
