“Baffin, l'île aux enfants”

In 2002, International Polar Year, six mountain climbers, good pals, travelled above the Arctic Circle to discover northwestern Nunavut in Canada: twenty-seven degrees below zero Celsius, a lost land of ice…and getting there was no easy task! They are welcomed by the inhabitants of Clyde River Village, a community of eight hundred Inuit people (Eskimos). With their help, they managed to get to the immense fjords on the Eastern Coast of Baffin Island, attempting to open a new ascension way…to climb to the top and perform "base-jumps". To stretch their dream, wingsuits, skis, snowboards, para-gliders and kites all came into play. Welcome to Baffin… the island for children!
