Climbing icebergs in Greenland

Hop aboard La Louise as we venture through the arctic waters of Greenland’s Disko Bay in search for the ultimate iceberg to summit with professional ice climbers Klemen Premrl and Aljaz Anderle. The icebergs are very fragile and unstable and to make it to the top the climbers must learn a valuable life lesson.

In another life I was a rock climber but never went in for ice climbing. However, I totally get why people love it.

This video is one of the most amazing climbing videos I’ve seen in years, not just because it’s novel to climb icebergs but because the quality of the video is so good.

If you can watch it on a big screen, zoomed out.

Brilliant production using GoPro Hero 4 cameras on the climbers and on a drone. Wow.
