The longest ever journey across Antarctica. The only traverse, via The South Pole, of the greatest axis of the continent: Six men from six countries, 36 husky dogs, 220 days, near 4,000 miles (6,000 Kms) through winter, summer and into the following winter. Battling through ferocious winter storms, isolation, crevasses, the team endured constant blizzards, little communication with the outside world and dwindling supplies. This unprecedented undertaking was considered absurd, ludicrous. However, seven months after starting, the team reached the far coast, proving the cooperation of so many cultures and the phenomenal stamina of the huskies could complete ‘The Impossible’.
