Arctic Expedition

Students ventured 78 degrees North in the most challenging and arduous conditions. They trekked across glaciers, camped in freezing temperatures .

Over a period of 5 days we covered a distance of 150 KM, using a combination of skidoos, on foot and finally huskies and sledges.

The average daytime temperatures were -45C with overnight plummeting to close to -60C.

We were based on the Island of Spitsbergen, which is 78 degrees North – exactly halfway between the Arctic Circle and the North Pole.
