The distances in Greenland are vast. Covering ground takes a lot longer that expected. On this day, we arrived at the ‘cave’ 6 hours after leaving camp #eagre18

A new book has been published featuring a creative essay by Gina on our expedition in 2015 to the caves of Greenland. The book is a collection of many essays all on geological themes. To order a copy visit Little Toller Books

We have just returned home from a successful shoot on the Yucatán peninsula in Mexico. Accompanying the filming team for the forthcoming Ancient Caves IMAX film, we followed the scientific climate work of Prof. Gina Moseley (@greenland_Caves) and visited several great locations and captured as much awesome footage of the ancient Mayan civilisation, their rituals and traditions above ground including the gorgeous blue Cenotes that exist underground. This recent shoot in Mérida, Mexico concludes all location shooting for the Ancient Caves IMAX film. Now the US team have to cut it all together in the editing suite. Good luck guys. I am really excited to see the final out come at the world premiere, somewhere in the US. #AncientCaves #IMAX #MacFreeFilms #IMAXdome #film #documentary

Thank you to Hill House School in Doncaster for a fantastic day. It was great to get to meet so many interesting young people and to answer their questions about climate change and exploration.

As we approached land, Chris prepared the anchor. For the journey across the sea it has been sealed so that it wouldn’t let water in.

We often get asked ‘did you see any polar bears?’. The answer is no. What we have seen though are musk ox. These beautiful large creatures that roam the meadows in Greenland. Mr and Mrs musk ox were especially cute.

Thank you to the Schwörer family for letting us join the @toptotopexpedition. Here is an album of fun photos showing life with 12 people on a 15.15m (50ft) boat. It was a blast ⛵️😀 Top to Top are presently sailing to the Netherlands, from where they plan to cycle to Switzerland. You can keep following their exploits via @toptotopexpedition

We met up with the Top To Top boat in Ittoqqortoormiit and because of the impending weather, we set sail immediately for Iceland. We sailed directly east to begin with, to get beyond the ice in the East Greenland current as soon as possible, and then turned south. Whilst carrying out our watches, it gave us time to reflect on what we had seen and what might have been. Finding shadows and shelters is not uncommon in cave exploration. It was a fantastic experience nonetheless, and now we have an answer!
