THE GREATEST KITE BUGGYCHALLENGE EVER
With the Ice Buggy Expedition we are pioneers in a NEW SUSTAINABLE WAY OF POLAR TRAVEL in Antarctica. Harnessing the wind and pioneering new, more efficient ways to use WIND POWER for progress and following A NEW ROUTE that’s never been done by Dutch before.
“HISTORY IN THE
WE WILL REACH THOSE BY:
1. Sparking the imagination: we will set 3 NEW WORLD RECORDS:
- The longest distance (approximately 3300 km) in a kitebuggy in complete autonomy
- Longest kitebuggy distance in 24 hours
- First crossing of the Antarctic continent in purpose-built kitebuggies.
2.Using innovative techniques developed by Dutch students, creating the best and most efficient ice buggy possible.
3.Preparing schools for an exciting educational program. This program combines information on environmental issues, innovation and history & future of Antarctica, with live contacts en experiences during the expedition.
In the race to create a better and more environment-friendly future, we will show that there is another way of doing things. A way forward in which innovation and the promotion of environmental awareness are the fundamental driving forces.
To attract attention for the unequal availability of fresh water, we will cross the largest fresh water reservoir on earth. We will demonstrate that innovation helps dreams come true, whether it is polar travel under the toughest conditions on earth, or the pursuit of a healthy planet for our children.
