At the end of the week, two norwegians, were gone to their meeting.

“We’re exhausted”

It is on his account Instagram that Mike Horn has given its news and explained that he had managed, somehow, to finish his expedition. “We got there We arrived at the Launches (an ice-breaker come to collect them, editor’s note) on our last day of rations.” wrote the explorer experienced. In his long post, he details his last day on the ice unstable. “The last 12 miles were difficult, we were moving 2 or 3 km/h when We were going slowly but we were constant. We managed to get to the boat and we felt relaxed. We were greeted with an excellent meal of soup, spinach, steak, chocolate fondant and ice,” he wrote.

Obviously, the two men must now recover. “We are exhausted and very tired mentally and physically. But as soon as we set foot on the boat, our bodies have left the survival mode, and we were less stressed. After eating, we took a long hot shower and it was amazing. We’re going to sleep, and we rest, waiting for the return in Norway,” he also wrote. The Spear is now stuck in the ice, but the days of the two explorers are no longer in danger. And that is the main thing !
