One Hundred Years On from the Fifth Thule Expedition - Crown Prince Frederik celebrates landmark anniversary

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the Fifth Thule Expedition - one of the most impressive polar expeditions in history.
The Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary Foundation is the patron of the anniversary celebration. They have supported the creation of this exhibition, which is why Crown Prince Frederik was present for the show's inauguration on 17 September 2021.
National Museum Director Rane Willerslev gave His Royal Highness a tour of the exhibition, which is just one part of the Nordlys Festival that has been organised to celebrate this event.
After the tour concluded, the two men participated in a roundtable discussion on their own modern experiences of polar explorations - Crown Prince Frederik took part in a four-month expedition through the north of Greenland called “Expedition Sirius 2000” with the role of videographer, ensuring the best possible footage of the trip.
