Norwegian kids train for Arctic adventure

Four Norwegian teenagers are getting to grips with Mother Nature as they embark on a made-for-TV adventure called “Mission Arctic”.

Elias, Erika, Johanne and Johannes began their quest on April 16 and are making their way to the North Pole.

The trek will take them about eight days.

Before the journey, the four were put through their paces by expedition leader, Aleksander Gamme at a training camp on the Norwegian Arctic islands of Svalbard.

SOUNDBITE: Aleksander Gamme, expedition leader, saying (Norwegian):

“We have to secure the tents regardless of the likelihood of a storm. That is the rule from now. And that’s the same with all we do – we have to be prepared to deal with these challenges at short notice.”

SOUNDBITE: Elias Damli, expedition participant, saying (Norwegian):

“It’s very windy and it’s quite cold and there’s snow so it’s quite tough.”

The training also included a stay on a research ship near Svalbard.

The aim of the expedition is to teach young people about the causes and effects of climate change.

The four will present their findings at the U.N. climate change conference in Paris in November.

But first, they have to learn how to control those huskies.
