28 days to ski around Bylot Island: David Reid (Scots and Canadian, expedition leader), Ingrid Ortlieb (German, living in Spain), Martin Garcia (Basque Spanish and Canadian), and myself (scientist of the expedition), have travelled nearly 500 km in autonomy, on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of Canada, with the help and protection of four dogs, sometimes on sea ice very rough and with many polar bears!

On May 9, we returned to our point of departure, Pond Inlet, an Inuit village north of Baffin Island in Nunavut, in the Canadian Arctic.
