TRAVERSEThrough the Svalbard inland from Longyearbyen to the mountains of Atomfjella with total distance of 250 km. There is a risk of falling into glacier crevasses or being attacked by a polar bear.
SKI MOUNTAINEERINGClimbing up and skiing on Newtontoppen peak, and other peaks that have never been descended on skis yet.
CLIMBINGWinter mixed climbs in the Atomfjella mountains range.
RESEARCHCollecting samples of snow for analysis of heavy metal content, carried out by the Research Institute of Mountain Biology in Tatranska Javorina.
ENVIRONMENT FRIENDLY APPROACHTo point out that the aims could be reached in harmony with the fragile environment of the Arctic region using no other means of transport but hiking and skitouring. This approach is crucially important in Svalbard, where the population of the polar bear is endangered by global climate change.
DOCUMENTARYIn cooperation with www.MADMARMOT.eu studio, documentary will be created. Photographic exhibition and presentation will be realized.
EDUCATIONALAfter the successful accomplishment of the expedition, lectures on the environmental changes in the Arctic region and ski-mountaineering will be given at the elementary and secondary schools.
