Arnesen was the leader of the first expedition formed by women which crossed the Greenland Ice Sheet in 1992. In 1994, she made international headlines when she became the first woman in the world to reach the South Pole alone – doing so on skis and without any type of external support. It was an expedition that lasted 51 days and was comprised of 1200 kilometers.
