Jerome Josserand, one of the best snowkiters in the world, first visited Iceland together with Breceljnik in 2010. Fascinated by its beauties and fantastic kite flying conditions, he decided to come back and cross the island from the north to the south on a snowkite. He embarks on the challenge of his lifetime in March 2011, attempting to cover a distance of more than 200 km – in a single day. His biggest worries are wind, with speeds of more than 150 km/h, and unpredictable weather, with temperatures that can go well below freezing, down to -30 degrees Celsius. In this wild Icelandic landscape, can he realize his old dream?
