The highlight of the Polar Bears & Paddleboards project will be a group expedition to Greenland paddling 100Km through the Sermilik Fjord in August 2013. This stunning area of Greenland coastline is littered with icebergs that calve off the icecap at the head of the Fjord and is one of the best locations for viewing icebergs on the whole of the east coast of Greenland. You can watch the adventure as it unfolds, by following us on Facebook & Twitter and by watching us live! We will be carrying an Iridium Extreme satellite tracker phone provided by Voyage Manager, check out our tracker page on their website: www.voyagemanager.com
