The name alone evokes mood and mystery. A land of fire and ice, where active volcanoes rise from a frozen wilderness and violent storms rage over jagged peaks whose summits tear holes in the turbulent sky.

Using a combination of kayaks, skis and kites, three Australians will traverse the South Patagonian Icecap - the third largest ice mass in the world - from the Pacific Ocean to the famous Torres del Paine National Park.

Storm-whipped seas and white-water rivers, deep crevasses and steep icefalls, winter blizzards and freezing temperatures combine to make this Patagonian traverse both heaven and hell. Follow the team live.

They will be Riding the Tempest.
