In August 2012 two members of UBC's Varsity Outdoor Club, Christian and Line Veenstra, travelled to Milne Land. An island located off the East coast of Greenland, Milne Land is located inside iceberg-choked Scoresby Sund, the largest fjord system in the world, approximately 120km from the closest town of Ittoqqortoormiit (population ~450). Join Christian and Line as they do a lot of slogging around crevasses on bare glacial ice before eventually finding a way onto the upper icecap to climb and ski peaks in this rarely visited area.
