The Inspiring Explorers team has safely made it home and are now taking some time to reflect on the massive achievement of completing the epic 560km crossing of the Greenland ice cap.
We want to take a moment to acknowledge everyone who contributed to the success of this expedition. A huge thank you to our expedition partners Kathmandu, for their support in keeping us safe and warm in the state-of-the-art XT Series. To Ousland Polar Exploration, and particularly master polar guide Bengt, who ensured that we had a smooth crossing (or at least as smooth as crossing an ice cap can be!), and ‘the weatherman’ Lars, who provided us with fantastic logistical support along the way.
We would also like to thank Lumix and GoPro for providing us with camera equipment that was able to withstand the cold and capture the incredible sights along the way, and to Røde for their support with audio equipment.
We’ve been blown away by the media coverage of the expedition, including features in The Herald, RNZ, Newshub, TVNZ and many more.
Thank you once again to everyone who has followed the expedition, and shown your support for the team as they pushed themselves to reach their goal. We can’t wait to share their experiences with you all over the coming months, and we hope that they have inspired you to do some exploring of your own, however that might look.
