(Newsdesk) Last week Bengt Rotmo has crossed the Northern Patagonia Ice Cap for the third time. He was guiding Mike O'Shea and Clare O' Leary from Ireland and a forth member, Elin. Bill Hanlon, who initially was in the team, had to return home with a sciatic nerve problem.

This short video gives a glimpse of how the team got to the ice cap (boat and horseback), the challenging and different types of terrain, the weather conditions (100 mile and hour winds), and the degree of difficulty of this 250 km route.
