An Epic expedition in truly uncharted waters.
The Arctic is under great threat from a multitude of environmental changes induced by climate change. Maneuvering between icebergs and glaciers, the crew of Ribbing for Arctic will attempt to be the first crew to navigate through the Arctic cicle with a recreational rigid inflatable boat (RIB). Starting from the coasts of Europe we plan to reach Iceland, cruise to Greenland and then cross the legendary Northwest Passage located in the north of Canada.
During the expedition our crew will document the effects of climate change in the arctic marine environment and wildlife. At the same time , we plan to reach remote Inuit settlements along the coast and provide much needed medical and material support. Ribbing for Arctic aims to raise the awareness on the arctic problem and emphasize that climate change is the greatest threat of our century .
