Danish South Pole Expedition
In 2000, Gregers and fellow adventurer Kristian Joos set out on a journey to be the first Danes to reach the South Pole. Starting in Punta Arenas, Chile, Gregers and Kristian flew to Patriot Hill, where they set out on skis towards the bottom of the Earth. Over 56 days and after countless misadventures, including the loss of Gregers' down jacket, the duo finally reached their goal: the Geographic South Pole.
Below, you'll find a selection of photos from the journey, documenting all the highs and lows of adventure in the Antarctic. Additionally, you can watch a short film (Danish only) created about the expedition by the Danish Broadcasting Corporation (DR).
