We arrived in Reykjavik and filmmaker Livia left. She joined us in Flores and joins us again later on. Our Icelandic phone number is +354 833 01 58.
We cycled around Iceland to find a hospital to give birth. On the way, we explored exciting examples of renewable technologies. Hans from sailboat Thor joint us. Lagoon car rentals provided us with an escort car. They are super! They are a young team and we can only recommend them. They plan to have hybrid- and electric cars.
On our trip around Iceland, we were swimming with Icebergs the same day, we climbed the TOP of Iceland, Hvannadalshnúkur with 2112 meters. Noe with 7 years did it in 7 hours from sea level. We started at 10 p.m. lastSaturday and summited on Sunday at 5 a.m.. We were back down at sea level at 10 a.m. after 12 hours climbing. As a desert, we went to the hot pool in Selfoss and to the Geysir.
For Dario as a mountain guide, it was one of his highlights in his life to see his kids climbing so well and enjoying it so much.
Back in Reykjavik Hans gave some training how Dario can control Sabine’s blood pressure, because of her pregnancy diabetes. It’s important that you can do it by yourself in remote places without hospitals.
Before departure from Reykjavik to the North, mountain guide Leifer joined us on Pachamama. He is very experienced in guiding in Greenland and could give us good advises, how we can approach the TOP of the Arctic. The best months are April, May, June, and August.
We had also the priveledges to welcome the Swiss honorary consul Jóhanna Vigdís Hjaltadóttir and her husband. She will help us with media and contacts to schools.
Evelyne fromGreenwich and Ron from Cordova just joined the boat and we are off to the North. Please trek us here!
