NORTH POLE - ARCTIC CHALLENGE
The Finnish expedition reached the North Pole on 29 April 2006. It planted the Finnish flag onto an ice block in the middle of the frozen Arctic ice field as a mark of accomplishing their goal. Over a period of two months the polar explorers skied a total of 800 km and encountered nearly impassable zones of rubble ice, crossed open water and survived free- zing cold down to –40°C without outside support.
Only 32 people in the world have succeeded in the same before them.
