The next challenge
Greenland south - north. 2.400 km on ice and snow.
South-North crossing 2.400k
Narsaq - Qaanaaq
Our next challenge takes us back to Greenland to try a journey of more than 2,400 km. The idea is to start at the southern end of the island, in the small settlement of Narsaq to end at Qaanaaq, at the north-west end of the island. To cover this distance in a reasonable time we will advance with snow kites, using them as sails taking advantage of the katabatic winds. This crossing has been made in few opportunities due to the great distance to cover in this so inhospitable environment.
This will be our 3rd expedition in Greenland and our 6th incursion into the polar territory. After having reached the North and South poles, as well as having crossed Greenland from East to West, we feel we have enough experience to face this challenge.
