Shapeless Fulfillment: A solo bikepacking adventure of Greenland's Arctic Circle Trail by local photographer and filmmaker Ben Haggar.
Summary: Inspired by a nomadic sense of exploration, Adventure Photographer and Polar Guide Ben Haggar attempts to be the first person to traverse the Arctic Circle Route in West Greenland by bike in the ‘summer’ months. But first, he has to get there. With the goal of slowing down to the pace of the Arctic, Ben works as a Polar Bear guide and Zodiac driver on a small ship exploring Canada’s fabled North-West Passage en-route to Greenland. Beginning at the Greenland Icecap and finishing in the coastal town of Sisimiut, Ben finds himself battling through rough terrain, loneliness, trench foot, and extreme weather. But, finds solace in the simple act of moving across the barren tundra as well as a few kilometres of beautiful singletrack.
