TRAK Kayaks / 2 Min Read / Solstice
The solstice is the shortest day of the year, signaling a return to light and rebirth of the new cycle of seasons. As we return the promise of a New Year, we're reflecting on where we've been.
The Promise of Light
Our earliest ancestors were intrinsically tied to the passage of the seasons in ways we take for granted today, but that deep relationship is still ingrained within us in more ways than we think.
Some of the most high days of the religious year are marked by many faiths around the Solstice, echoing that importance. Those who came before us have marked the "shortest" day of the year for as long as they've been looking up to the stars.
The Winter Solstice represents the promise of the return of light, of energy and renewal in our world. In the modern day we're disconnected from the natural world in many of the ways those before us were intrinsically connected.
Reflecting on the past, welcoming the future
Like everyone, we experience that passage of time at TRAK and are reflecting on the year behind us, before we celebrate the promise of 2024. Together with our community we've made huge strides in 2023 and we're excited to be building on that momentum into the year upcoming!
If you're looking for some inspirational journeys for 2024, why not check out the adventures our community has paddled this year in our TRAKings in the WILD.
We also celebrated with our first annual Owners Gathering here in BC.
Looking forward, we have some unique amazing camps and tours in incredible paddling destinations available for 2024.
From all of us at TRAK, we're wishing you a season filled with light and the promise of rebirth in the New Year.
