The Arctic Arc expedition was quite an achievement: it was the first crossing from Siberia to Greenland via the North Pole.

A contest was organised by the International Polar Foundation in partnership with Haglöfs. We asked you to guess the total distance registered by Alain's GPS during the expedition.

Thanks to all the participants who participated to win the various prizes:

  • First prize : A "Polar Explorer" pack in partnership with Haglöfs (a Genius tent for 2, a Zlumber 5 sleepingbag and a Heli Jacket - Gore-tex XCR);
  • For the 9 runners-up: A framed picture signed by Alain and Dixie and an "educational pack" from the International Polar Foundation (CD-ROM, comic book,...).

Alain's GPS displayed a total of 1.598,786 kilometres.
