Across Antarctica : an incredible achievement

 

Browse 2045 kilometers in 73 days to ski -50 ° C, here the challenge Stephanie and Jeremie Gicquel have taken up crossing Antarctica via the South Pole from 14th November 2014 to 27th January 2015. ACROSS ANTARCTICA is the the longest ski expedition carried out to date by a woman in Antarctica without pulling veil (which allows travel larger distances and tow a heavier load), the first crossing of Antarctica unassisted by French and the first crossing of Antarctica as a couple.

They share their passion and fascination with the immensity of the polar regions and their paradox - a sanctuary where nature reveals its tremendous power and yet is so fragile, through a book, with a preface by Nicolas Vanier. Stephanie and Jeremie share this exceptional expedition in pictures. A meeting that is important to share in order to raise public awareness of the importance of the polar regions a few weeks before the inauguration in Paris of the 21th UN Conference on Climate Change.

In addition, Stephanie and Jeremie are convinced that sharing experiences in extreme environments can also be a great tool for companies and organizations who value sport as a vehicle for personal well-being and professional and performance, and that the difficulties and they have overcome obstacles to achieve their goals, and key they used to get there, can be highly instructive for the corporate world.

Beyond performance, this book is above all an invitation to live life fully, without fear or regret. They share their experiences during conferences that were labeled COP21 by the Ministry of Ecology, Sustainable Development and Energy.

Stephanie and Jeremie are members of Somewhere Club partenaire de Cominsights.


Le défi across Antarctica

This book is published in English. Du 14 novembre 2014 au 27 janvier 2015, Stéphanie et Jérémie Gicquel ont traversé l’Antarctique en ski via le pôle Sud sur 2 045 kilomètres, réalisant ainsi un exploit inédit. Il s’agit notamment de l’expédition en ski la plus longue réalisée à ce jour par une femme en Antarctique, sans voile de traction. Au-delà de la performance, ce livre est avant tout une invitation à vivre pleinement sa vie, sans peur ni regret. Ce récit d’expédition illustré par des images uniques de lieux inexplorés est aussi un voyage poétique à la découverte de l’Antarctique avec ce couple d’aventuriers. Un hommage à ce continent semblable à un océan de glace figé à près de trois mille mètres d’altitude, dont les vagues sont façonnées par le vent – sanctuaire où la nature révèle sa formidable puissance à ceux qui s’y aventurent et qui est pourtant si fragile. Livre relié, 200 pages de texte et photos, préface de Nicolas Vanier.
