About the Project:
In the Winter of 2015/2016, Capturing the journey of four young men who aim to be the first people ever to cross Iceland in winter, completely unsupported. We were glad to sponsor this project and can't wait to see the results. The Pilot film takes a look into their preparation as they scout a route through the highlands of Iceland, the most testing and dangerous section of this winter journey. cross the country whilst relying solely on the equipment and food they have carried and hauled with them since the start of the expedition. They document the entire expedition through film, writing and live blog updates.
This expedition is different to most, if not all other Arctic expeditions, because after they have progressed through the relatively flat Pole-like Icelandic Interior, they shall then cross a so-far-uncrossed route over the Southern Icelandic mountain ranges, including the world famous Eyjafalljokull Volcano.
The sun will not rise fully throughout the expedition.
