Into this scene of Arctic tranquility shoots a shaft of reality. Those towers of ice, so calm and placid in afternoon sun, could explode at any minute and send tens of tons of ice smashing into the sea. Or onto a kayak. Which is exactly what happened … leading to a desperate race to save two trapped kayakers from certain death, followed by week-long struggle for survival without food or shelter through a 140 knot snow-filled hurricane. One of the many incredible stories of Savage Coast. These narrow passages between icebergs are corridors of death.
