Two young British adventurers, Alex Hibbert (22) and George Bullard (19), are attempting to make a double, out-and-back, crossing of Greenland.

According to the information published at their website (which tends to be a little contradictory at times), it would appear that the two young Britons have decided to set out from the south-east of the island, in the vicinity of Timmiarmiut or Kulusuk (close to the 65th parallel), then head towards the north-west (Kraulshavn, around the 75th parallel) and then finally return along the same route back to their departure point. This is a total of approximately 2250 km or, according to the site, the longest trek ever made in the polar regions without being re-supplied.

On the outward leg of their trip, the two men will drop off stashes of equipment and rations that they can then use on their return journey (see our map). Once they have arrived close to the west coast, they will leave their sledge on the plateau and descend using mountaineering techniques down to the coast.

On the return trip, they will have to make sure they proceed with care between the stashes they leave behind on the outward leg so that they do not lose them.
