  1. Another way to walk on ice is to trace your point of balance as you move your feet. Do not stride, use short steps and try to grab the surface with your toes. If you get the hang of, it will look better than the penguin walk and will be way more comfortable in the long run! – From a longfaring Norwegian

  2. Pffft… Amateurs.. I live in northern Norway. I just take a running start and sliiiiiiiiiide. Way more efficient.

  3. THIS IS THE MOST AWESOME THING I HAVE EVER READ OMG NOW I CAN TRAVEL TO SCANDINAVIA AND LIVE WITH PENGUINS!!!!! THANK YOU SOOO MUCH I WISH I HAD LIKE TEN BILLION MONEY SO I COULD GIVE YOU LIKE A COUPLE MILLION MONEY FOR DOING THIS.THE RESEARCH IS AMAZING YOU GUYS!! /Going to Norway soon!

  4. I’ve always been very scared of walking (or driving) in icy conditions – though we don’t get it this much in Germany (where I’m from) or in Scotland (where I live)… When there’s just the slightest bit of ice on the ground, I get nervous and really scared to go out. Even with tracks on the bottom of my feet I don’t feel safe.
    I’ll try the method you described and see if this works for me – it would be a major confidence boost if it does!
