The team flew through the night to the Arctic Ocean. It was both spectacular and terrifying to see on arrival!
After landing at 0600 the team got straight to business. Today they skied 10 km of their journey to the North Pole despite not sleeping last night. Tents were pitched around 2000 by an exhausted but very proud team. As the team rest the ice will continue to move them along, during pitching the team moved exactly sideways to their destination. Let us hope that a change in direction overnight is a gain towards the pole.
The weather is beautiful up on the Arctic sea ice* and the temperature -38 degrees.
This has been a very good first day #NorthPole2018
