Polar Venture

Polar Venture: In March 2008, a team of two attempted to ski 200km across the Penny ice cap, unaided and with temperatures reaching as low as -60°C whilst inspiring young people into exploration and climate change through education. The expedition has successfully returned. See expedition links below: Expedition Blog Expedition Photographs MAP: Large map of entire planned route MAP: Detailed map of covered section SPONSOR US"
