TrisTrans Saga is the story of two little adventurers, who together with their parents have embarked on an adventure of a lifetime.
The TrisTrans Saga is a real life story and a personal journey of a family – who have taken the leap to make their dreams come true. The family has chosen to clock off, from a busy everyday family life, to together head out into the unknown.
TrisTrans Saga is the ongoing story of the adventures of Tristan and Nanook. As a family, they travel around the world exploring new continents and mountain ranges, using horses, skies, bikes and canoes as their means of transport. The Saga show that family life can be combined with a life in the great outdoors and it clearly demonstrate that children love exploring.
“We love to hike in the mountains. It gives us a boost of energy and a good feeling – especially on the summit.”
The family is originally from Belgium, but probably more to be regarded as citizens of the world after all their travels. The family includes mum Kim, dad Jochem and the children, Nanook and Tristan. Jochem is a doctor by profession and has many years of experience as a tour guide and dog sled driver. Kim is a nurse with a passion for horses. Nanook and Tristan attend an outdoor farm nursery.
The title of the project is inspired by and a version of the name of the Norse TrisTrams Saga. and the wanderlust is inspired by the Vikings voyages. And to make it more personable; On the way through the finest untouched regions of the world (TRANS). Up to some of the most beautiful mountain summits (TRIS) there are.
“Life in the great outdoors is addictive. It’s about the thrill of facing extreme challenges and heading out into the exciting unknown. About strong experiences, freedom and mastery.”
We like to follow Tristan and Nanook on their adventures and are constantly amazed about their strength and bravery. It’s also touching to see how united the family is on their exhibitions, taking quality time to a whole new level. On a more practical side, based on their own experiences and challenges, the family give tips and advice about what it’s like taking children on tour and how to plan longer trips with children.
Through their travelblog the family wants not only to share their adventures but also spreading the joy of exploring the great outdoors. It is about learning to appreciate the simple life and about understanding the relationship between nature, culture and health.
If you’ve always dreamed off taking the children exploring, or thought you had to give adventure holidays up because you’ve become a parent, this is a family adventure worth following!
