Record #140273:

Verdens lengste skitur / Rune Gjeldnes.

Title: Verdens lengste skitur / Rune Gjeldnes.
Translated title: The world's longest ski tour.
Author(s): Gjeldnes, Rune.
Date: 1996.
Language: Norwegian.
In: Årbok. (1996.), (1996)
Abstract: Author and Torry Larsen were in 1996 first to traverse Greenland end to end. Start was by parachute just north of Cape Farewell, towards which they began to paddle, but had to return one day from cape. They had parachutes to use wind and in one 10-hour day achieved record 175 km. Pulling 150 kg was stressful, especially on knees. Getting down at J.P.Kocks Fjord was problem; glacier had grown since their photo was taken. They took 86 days for 2928 km, beating Fiennes's and Stroud's Antarctic record.
