This year the TOPtoTOP became the youngest party to climb the Beerenberg on Jan Mayen. The youngest being 10 years.

Over the past 21 years Dario and Sabine Schwörer has circumnavigated our blue planet doing field-based research for universities, scientists and research organizations. They have visiting the world’s most remote regions and their native inhabitants, and sharing examples of innovative solutions to protect, preserve and conserve our planet.

They now have six children, all born on different continents, and are still on a mission to save the ocean with their TOPtoTOP expedition. We talked to them at their base in Lyngseidet, Troms.

You can read more about them on TOPtoTOP and a video presentation on the Expedition Sailing Virtual Boat Show.
