The Dutchmen safely back home
Published on 23.06.2008 - Notice Expedition
The adventure ended without much drama for the Dutch trio composed of Joep Bovens, Eric Schlameisen and Philipp De Roo as they completed their crossing of Greenland.
After spending over 40 days and nights out on the ice, the three Dutchmen finally made their way down the icecap and reached the little port of Qaanaaq. However, at the end of their trip, their path was blocked by a frozen fjord too dangerous to cross.
The three men had to call in a helicopter to come and pick them up. After camping for three days alongside the fjord, spending most of their time in their sleeping bags and meeting some of the local polar bears, the trio finally reached Qaanaaq on 18th June.
They arrived back in Amsterdam on Sunday 22nd June.
