We met two French explorers who were preparing in Greenland for an expedition to the North Pole in 2012.

A few hours after this picture was taken they were attacked by two polar bears only 3km from where we were staying. Luckily they managed to escape unharmed.

Here is the video from the French news reporting on the attack.
