After having crossed Greenland from east to west last year, the three gentlemen from Holland, Joep Bovens (34), Eric Schlameisen (39) and Phimip De Roo (23), will be attempting to cross the island from south to north this spring.

To mark the International Polar Year even better, this Dutch trio wanted to innovate and attempt a double crossing of Greenland in two spring seasons. From east to west last year, and from south to north during this spring of 2008 as far as the longer route is concerned.

part from the fact that they're doing it in the opposite direction, they have more or less the same programme as the Finns. That's to say a journey of about 2,500 kilometres.

Their progress too will be totally independent and the only energy sources that they will have will be the rays of the sun, the force of the wind and the biofuel in their luggage. Last year, the East-West crossing was 600 km long and took them 26 days.
