Crossing Greenland with Adrian Hayes

12 May 2011 | 11:58 am

UAE-based adventurer Adrian Hayes (UK) and adventurers Devon McDiarmid and Derek Crowe (both Canada), traversed the full length of the Greenland ice cap from Narsaq to JP Kocks Fjord and then on to Qaanaq, NW Greenland, travelling a straight line distance of 3120 kms.

The 67 day journey travelled a straight line distance of 3120 kms (total distance 4260 kms) on a route that had never been completed before, with the team carrying all their supplies for the journey. The trio endured difficult conditions throughout, primarily from head winds or little winds, together with swathes of glacial melt water and numerous crevasses on the final leg.
