Skiing across Greenland to support Scouts in Lebanon


Check out these guys. They will complete a 570km unsupported ski crossing of the Greenland icecap to celebrate 100 years of Scouting and raise funds to help Scouts rebuild Lebanon.

As they put it:
"we will have to carry all our food, fuel and equipment to enable us to survive in this harsh climate for up to 4 weeks. We will ski east to west over Greenland which is the second biggest ice cap in the world and each day we will be aiming to cover between 20 and 30 km. All of our food, fuel and equipment will be pulled behind us on Pulkes"


These Guys are tough! Check out their progress here
