  • Description

    A very interesting expedition is the ice-sending from the glacial ice of Svartisan that the Arctic Circle, Norway through Sahara to Lambarene in Africa and Albert Schweitzer's famous Hospital. They took the ice from the big glacial and transported it then to the middle of Norway by helicopter.

    There the ten-block was packed in glass fiber, as they say that this material is a very good insulator and that the ice not will melt buforax during the travelling through Europe and Africa.

    Now the ice-block (3 tons) is on its way and as the reports have told us during the first days there was no melting at all.
