Expedition members will be provided with pre-trip medical advice and a medical questionnaire and asked to visit their family physician to receive a full medical examination. This information will be sighted only by the expedition leader and our medical adviser and treated with full confidentiality.
Level of experience required
Although not technically difficult the ascent of Mt Gunnbjörn is fairly strenuous and prior experience in winter travel and glacier crossing is important. Participants should be physically and mentally prepared for several days out in a remote area where harsh weather and conditions can be expected.
A good level of fitness, along with the ability to work as part of a small team are also important.
