AUF NANSENS SPUREN-EXPEDITION DURCH GRÖNLAND
Germany / 1988 / 45'
In 1888 the great Norwegian explorer Firdtjof Nansen, Nobel Price for Peace in 1922, led the first crossing of Greenland from east to west on foot with ski or sledges, a distance of 550 km. The crossing took from 4 june to 4 october. A hundred years later, five Germans made the same crossing in honor of Nansen and his feat, but with lighter and more comfortable equipment. The journey took 34 days.
