Vilborg arrived at the South Pole on January 17th, 101 years after Robert Scott and his team, and 60 days after she has started out from Hercules Inlet (80°S). She became the first person from Iceland, man or woman, to ski a full route from the coast to the South Pole.
In 1995-96 Icelanders Ólafur Örn Haraldson, his son Haraldur Örn Ólafson, and Ingþór Bjarnason skied to the South Pole starting from Patriot Hills, an inland position 1084 km from the Pole.
After the 60 day and 1,140-kilometers long journey, Vilborg treated herself to a meal of potatoes and bacon.
"I want to thank everyone for all of their support, warm regards, participation in Lifsspor charity on Facebook and last, but not least, contribution to the charity", Vigdís wrote on her blog.
