Majka Burhardt is a writer, climber, filmmaker, and guide. She has traveled throughout the world by bike, canoe, and – more often than not – by hand and foot. For the past two decades, Majka has journeyed from the Roof of Africa to the waters of the Arctic, and her stories of unlikely human interaction inspire and inform international audiences. Majka is the author of two books: Coffee Story: Ethiopia and Vertical Ethiopia. She is Executive Producer of the 2010 film, Waypoint Namibia and the forthcoming Lost Mountain. She champions “Additive Adventure”—when adventure goes beyond exploration to cultural and environmental connections that create a larger conversation of singular and collective human meaning. Curious how to say her name? It's "My-ka."
