Canadian adventurer Sarah McNair-Landry grew up on a diet of snow and ice, reaching both poles by the age of 18. Together with whitewater kayaking specialists Erik Boomer and Ben Stookesberry she embarks on a kite-ski and kayak mission of epic proportions across Greenland to reach the most northern river ever paddled. In the film Into Twin Galaxies, these three National Geographic Adventurers of the Year push themselves to their limits and discover the unexpected.
