Our North Pole expedition starts in Resolute, Northern Canada with a training trip to build the team as well as test clothing and equipment. From Resolute we fly north by Twin Otter to Ward Hunt Island, a small island just off northern Ellesmere Island. From Ward Hunt to the Geographic North Pole is 416 nautical miles (770 km) of arctic pack ice.  Once the North Pole is reached we fly back to Longyearbyen, Norway and the expedition concludes here.

This ice is always shifting; leads crack open and pressure ridges build into massive walls of ice chunks. To add to the challenge of it all is the extreme cold temperatures, often as cold as -40 ºC.

On this expedition we are stepping into the ski tracks left by the legendary arctic explorers! It will be the same landscapes, the same wind that will push you forward or on the contrary, will hamper your movement northwards. The same ice hummocks will block your way and you will have to negotiate them. Drifting ice fields will not respect the hard work or the tremendous effort required to move forward, but challenges aside, with a lot of hard work, and after almost 60 days, you’ll reach the top of the planet.


We share tents and the chores of cooking. The coldest part of the day will be in the breakdown of the camp as we pack sleds and begin the daily trek. Each day we will move for 8-10 hours with regular rests for food and fluid intake. Once we reach our camping destination for the day we set up the tents and build snow walls to protect the tents from wind.
