Solar Arctic Passage

Science & Technology // June 19, 2015

Raphaël Domjan is about to cross the Northwest passage of the Arctic in a solar powered kayak.

Solar Arctic Passage

He's left his home comforts in Neuchatel and is now waiting in Northern Canada for the ice conditions to be right for his passage across.

Katt Cullen caught up with Raphaël before he left Swizterland to find out more about his daring adventure in the Antarctic and the home comforts he'll be missing.

Spoiler alert: there may be BEARS!
