North Of Disko II: Preparations


Learning the ropes with the kite buggies at Glassilaun beach, Connemara.

Can there be anything more enjoyable, on a cold winters evening, than snuggling down in front of the telly and watching a bunch of cold, tired and seasick explorers doing battle with the elements? Well, that is exactly what TG4 has on offer at 2000h on St. Stephen's Day.

In 2013 a small crew of sailors, climbers and kayakers set sail from the west coast of Ireland for the North West coast of Greenland. After a storm filled 18 days we reached Greenland’s south coast and continued north to Upernavik inside the Arctic Circle. Here the expedition split into 3 parts with the kayakers completing a 500 mile journey south, the climbers attempting a number of first ascents in their wake and a photographer gathering incredible images of ice from glacier top to melting icebergs.
