 In 1923, four students from Oxford University made the first crossing of the Spitsbergen ice cap. Bad weather, failing equipment and heavy sleds made the 32-day crossing an unimaginably arduous endeavour. 93 years later, to the day, four students from the same university returned to the Arctic in their footsteps, to discover the secrets of their epic journey and see first hand the beauty of this pristine wilderness. The film Spitsbergen Retraced tells the story of this unsupported journey across the ice as the team experiences arctic storms, stunning alpine ridges and historical treasures.
