The two explorers were whisked off of Greenland by helicopter on Friday.
Dansercoer (51) and McNair-Landry (30) commenced their expedition on 10 April. In 55 days they covered 4,044.9 km only assisted by a kite and breaking the record for the longest unassisted kite expedition on polar ice.
During their expedition the explorers collected data for climate change research. The expedition was well-prepared and they had expected to take eighty days to complete a trek of over 5,000 km. Due to the weather and the terrain the route was curtailed.
