Paddling to the Arctic Circle – Into the Waves II

The Arctic Circle limits the polar area. This far north the sun doesn't rises above the horizon in winter and in summer it stays up day and night. That was something Eike Köhler and Basti wanted to experience. So they started a more than 1000 km long journey to the north. The film «Into the Waves II – Paddling to the Arctic Circle« tells their story with its ups and downs in a breathtaking landscape.
