Last night expedition leader Róbert Þór and his fellow expedition members landed in Iceland after a successful trip across Greenland Ice cap.
The team endured intense weather on the first week of the expedition. For four and a half day the team was grounded while severe storms passed (incl. one Piteraq with winds of 35m/s (126 km/h) howling outside their tent.
Close to the DYE II station, one ski broke in half. A day later a binding, and a pole. With some tail winds the team managed many 30 km days in a row and even two 40 km days.
The following pictures where taken when the expedition members where greeted by the staff of Icelandic Mountain Guides up on arriving in Reykjavik. A more detailed version of the exp. story is underway.
