Over the next six days, in the Land of the Midnight Sun, modern-day adventurists Olly Hicks and George Bullard will be navigating past icebergs, through thick, freezing fog, next to whales and over gnarly seas on their kayaks, across the Devil's Dancefloor to Iceland's Faroe Islands. Although this is just a section of their grand adventure from Greenland to Scotland, it’s meant to be the toughest both physically and mentally. They'll be without assistance and it's expected to take between five and six days. Hicks and Bullard could take the easy road to the remote arctic islands (it takes just 14 hours to make the ferry trip), but where's the adventure in that?
