Arktikos - An Arctic Odyssey

Graeme Dingle completed the 1st circumnavigation of the Arctic Circle in June 1993

"A documentary which follows one of New Zealand's foremost explorers, Graeme Dingle, during his quest to be the first to circumnavigate the Arctic circle. Focuses on the relationships between team members during the expedition." from NZOA Programme Catalogue.

"Graeme Dingle is a driven man, and one of a rare breed of great explorers. He has climbed the sheer, mile-high Kaipo Wall in Fiordland, New Zealand , rafted down some of the world's wildest rivers, completed a traverse of the Himalayas and in this documentary attempts tp circumnavigate the Arctic.

Interviews, combined with some stunning footage of the Arctic, make this is a unique portrait of a remarkable personality."
 
"Going to Greenland in the summer with 24 hours of daylight and meeting these crazy adventurers was a career highlight for me," Anna Cottrell
