This story begins with an adventurer and a Shark walking with a sled across Europe’s largest glacier: the Vatnajökull. This ice cap is in danger.
Follow them on a fascinating journey through volcanoes, canyons, valleys and northern lights, and help them freeze Vatnajökull majesty, one breathtaking moment at a time.
Formed thousands of years ago, Vatnajökull is by far the largest glacier in Iceland and the largest glacier mass in all of Europe. It covers an area of roughly 8,000 km2 and is almost 1000 m thick at its deepest point, with an average thickness of 500 m and a total ice volume of 3300 cubic kilometers. Vatnajökull is in danger.
Recent studies have demonstrated that the Arctic is warming twice as fast as any other place on Earth. If the climate continues to warm up, the Icelandic glaciers will completely disappear in 200 years. We need to stop the pace of the climate change before it’s too late. Before there will be no more Vatnajökull to cross.
