Aged 28, the Belgian amateur adventurer Arnaud Maldague will embark in a great adventure consisting in crossing the American continent from north Canada to south Argentina.
More than a discovery journey, The Manneken Trip is a sporting and ecological challenge. The 30,000 km itinerary will be covered without using any motorized mode of transportation but only by practicing several sports like nordic skiing, sailing, horseback riding, or walking.

While climate disruption involved by the impact of human activity on the environnement is such a hot topic, Arnaud will intend to meet the local actors of friendly-environmental initiatives to highlight their actions.
