Although I've embedded them they are beautifully filmed and I recommend full screen viewing.

Does anybody know if these videos can be downloaded anywhere? Struggling a bit here with my 0.2mb connection speed.

You could just pause them until they buffer or you could try Final Video Downloader.

The spirit of adventure and our motivation to embark on an expedition with a smaller ecological impact and more by fair means, lead us to the idea to combine a climbing expedition with a sail boat for transportation. With a bit of research, Greenland seemed the perfect destination for this adventure.
