To ski unsupported across Greenland is an adventure of the highest degree. First completed by the celebrated Arctic adventurer Fritjof Nansen in 1888, this expedition is still a major achievement, albeit with the luxury of modern equipment and transport.
We traverse this 335 mile (539 km) trek over 27 days and build the entire trip into a 34 day expedition. We include the latest communications equipment into our kit and have reliable aircraft support as back up.
The nature of this expedition demands strong team cohesion and commitment. It is a spectacular and rewarding journey and is also ideal training for Antarctic and Arctic travel. If you have a good level of fitness and are a team player then we welcome you to apply for a place on the expedition team.
- Polar travel in the steps of the early explorers
- Incredible vistas to the end of the world!
- Develop endurance and strategy for longer polar odysseys
