Synopsis by C. Dwayne Smith

Before the X-games, bungee jumping, and street luge, there was the Iceland River Challenge. Featuring 12 men, five countries, and 128 miles of thunderous river, this video from National Geographic and Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment documents the incredible white-water journey down the Jokulsa a Fjollum, from the source to the mouth. With breathtaking scenery and groundbreaking achievement, this adventure documentary has actually been used as a business tool in regard to teamwork, conflict resolution, management, and overcoming stressful situations with strong planning skills and adaptability. Available as a canoeing and kayaking training device, this tape is both educational and extremely entertaining.
