Nunavut Canada Exped – Day 5

Mike Horn and the Young Explorers leave the comfort of Pangaea and embark on a two day expedition crossing a glacier north of Clyde River, on the east coast of Baffin Island.

Update from Mike from the glacier (3.30pm Swiss time)

"All the YEP's are doing really well!! As soon as Pangaea dropped us off onto the glacier from Sam Fiord we saw a polar bear with two cubs. During the first day we walked 6 kms. The terrain has been rough and there have been some big crevasses to walk around so this has held us up a bit.

With 50kms to walk we have now trekked half the distance. We should arrive at the next fiord tomorrow evening where Pangaea is already waiting for us.

The weather has been mild for this time of year, -10°C in the evening and 1 °C when we wake up in the morning.

It's great out here and we are all having a great time together. This is Nature at its best with not a soul around!!"
