Video: The Ice Run Recap

Posted on January 31, 2013 by

At the start of December, we set off on an epic train journey around the coldest reaches of Europe with Eurail.Com. This journey – which we aptly named the Ice Run – was all about the ice, the powdery snow, the raw wilderness and the chilly cold. To mush in the sugar-coated winter land, we tried our hands at all sort of outdoor activities from racing on snowmobiles and sledding with husky dogs, to sleeping in an igloo and catching the Northern Lights. The train journeys were even more unforgettable – we feasted on the spectacular views while swooshing past fjords, through mountains and past frozen rivers.

Over the month, we clocked over 3,076 miles (4.950 km), crossing 6 countries and stopping at 25 different locations.

We’ve put together a cool video packing one month of train travel into four minutes. To read more about the journey, check out these blog posts or find our live updates on Twitter with the hashtag #WJicerun.

These are some of the scenes you’ll see in the video:

Here’s a map outlining the route of the Ice Run. While on the road, we also added photos and checked in on foursquare. Click to see the real-time updates!
