ABOUT PLANET RIVER

The PLANET RIVER Logo

The circle represents the eternal capacity of planet earth to naturally sustain free flowing & pure lotic environments. The multi-directional river sustains the planet in return, in returning turns and bends.

Original idea & concept by Rob. Ine expressed the concept with rough drawings and illustrations. The final image and font illustrations were fine tuned by Lillian Korstad Design in Oslo, Norway.

PLANET RIVER ®, the name and PLANET RIVER ®logo is the approved and registered trademark of PLANET RIVER DA.

A Confluence Story

1000´s of kilometres of river current, individually travelled and experienced in the river travel industry by Rob & Ine led to the confluence of combined interest.

A boat was designed and built to run this flow. She was named Planet River. A small crew is currently on board and it is paddled by Rob Wilson & steered by Ine Skjørten Wilson.

Their passion is to explore and document rivers of our planet from source to mouth. Promoting river travel on clean free flowing rivers - involving safety, white water instruction, tours and multi-day descents.

Through expeditions & documentation, future plans will include educational publishing and possibly developing a river lifestyle center.
