American Peaks is a project where photographer Emma Svensson is going to climb the highest mountain in every country in America. Emma started climbing mountains 2017 and decided then to do the project 49 peaks where she within a year climbed the highest mountain in every country in Europe as first swede (and 473 days faster then the current world record). She ended up climbing 61 mountains.

For the American project Emma is going to work together with Rainforest Trust to raise money to save the rainforest in Amazonas. Every donation you make will be doubled and if you like this project and want to contribute you can easily do that here!
