Over 26 days the team skied from Tassilaq on the East Coast of Greenland to Kangerlussuaq on the West Coast unsupported, following the line of the Arctic Circle. In doing so they crossed the vast expanse of the Greenland Ice Sheet, facing huge crevasse fields and fierce polar storms. The team also witnessed the impact of climate change first-hand, negotiating meltwater rivers and huge meltwater lakes very early in the Arctic Spring season.
