Greenland Snowkite Crossing

Recommended Posts

"3 men, 9 kites and 330 kg food and equipment…that was needed for a 27 day crossing over the Greenland ice cap: powered by only wind. Adventurers Eric Leegwater (NL), Bjorn Wils (DK) and Carl Alvey (NO) used snowkites to cover a 2620 km distance in complete absence of any civilization. An absolute absurd trip"


New video and news covering the Greenland Snowkite Crossing.

Does anybody remember the Greenland crossing, several years ago. 3 guys on skis, with Quadrifoil kites. All rather primitive, but made for a fascinating tv doco. 

This new effort looks so professional, by comparison.
