Across Greenland Polar Ice Cap

Across Greenland Polar Ice Cap
Tasermiut, South Greenland Expeditions

This expedition across the Inland ice is a unique opportunity to enter into one of the most mysterious and infrequently visited places on the planet. One of the few places in the world where the word "unexplored": appears on the map. Inlandice or Greenland's interior ice field, is an enormous glacier, which measures 2,500 Km. from North to South and 1,000 Km. East to West. In some areas the ice is 3,000 m. thick. It was crossed for the first time in 1888 by the Norwegian, Nansen, since then, less people have crossed it than have climbed Everest.

The crossing leaves from the coast to climb, on foot, the interior plateau, which is crossed at an altitude of about 1,000 m. we have to cross areas of ravines, crevasses, rough ice, as well as glacial lakes and rivers. We can find Nunataks and moraine which cannot be seen from the coast, all of this with the double landscape of the plateau stretching as far as the eye can see and looking back towards the coast to enjoy a superb view of the complex system of fjords, mountains and ice-floes. After spending 100 Km. and a totally isolated environment, with only ourselves for company, we descend back to the coast.
