A passage through ice

Nicolas Peissel, Edvin Buregren, Rana Ghose and Morgan Peissel

Nicolas Peissel, Edvin Buregren, Morgan Peissel and Rana Ghose are going to explore a new route across the Arctic through the melting ice cap. Rather than the traditional route through the Northwest Passage, this crew is going to attempt a northerly route that will take them through McClure Strait to the Bering Strait and into the Pacific Ocean. From Newfoundland to Vancouver, the crew will trace the history of explorers who have attempted the route in the past while documenting the changes that are currently taking place in the Arctic.
