The Greenland Crossing Expedition is about to start. The expedition members coming from abroad are arriving to Iceland this weekend. On Tuesday the 19th the team of five will fly off to Kulusuk, east Greenland and continue right away to Tasiilaq. There they will stay for two nights before being flown up to Hahn glacier where the actual crossing starts.
In Tasiilaq they need to take care of some paperwork, hand in permits and also do the last preparations before starting the almost month long journey across to the west side of the ice cap.
Here on this blog site we will map the team’s progress. The map will be „glued“ to the top of the page if you go through the “Greenland Crossing 2016” link under the “Greenland Expeditions” category tab on the top of the web site. So we recommend you bookmark that link if you are focusing on this specific expedition.
We will post comments from expedition members and tell about how things are going in general. We try give those at home some insight into the expedition life. So stay tuned if you are interested in following how the expedition is going.
