Upcoming Event – Crossing Europe's Largest Glacier in 2020



Posted by Jeremy Windsor on Jan 02, 2020

Jiske Steensma has been in touch with news about the next "Remote Medicine on Ice" course that's taking place in Norway between the 9th and 15thMay 2020. Here's what she said,

"Jostedalsbreen is the largest glacier in continental Europe, covering almost 500 square kilometres of ice. The amount of ice is rapidly declining and before the glacier entirely disappears we would like to take you – maximum 25 people – on a ski tour across it. This expedition on "Norway's Roof" takes 3 days. It is a physically challenging trip, but your muscles aches will be soothed in the outdoor jacuzzi of the lodge we will be using at the start and end of our trip. From the comfort of the lodge we will prepare for the crossing with workshops and lectures on remote medicine on ice, "friluftsliv" and how to cross Josten safely."

The week costs £1250 and covers all guiding, catering, CPD and in country travel costs. A deposit of £250 holds a place until 1st February 2020.
