North Pole - All the Way

More...

Temperatures

The effective temperature is defined by the strength of the wind. Temperatures will be in the range of – 40 degrees C (and F) to 0 degrees C (32 degrees F). As the team nears the pole and spring sets in, temperatures will rise and the ice will constantly break, making forward progress sometimes agonizingly slow. Ultimately a lot will depend on the season and the general weather patterns. Weather analysis will be provided by experts in Polar meteorology which will assist us in being forewarned of major weather systems.

Clothing & Equipment

For most of the trek members need only be clad in fleece clothing with windproof shells. Warm expedition mittens and hats will be necessary in addition to a facemask to keep wind and blowing snow at bay. Lightweight down clothing will help members endure the cold starts and be additional warmth (if needed) in the sleeping bag.

We supply all of the team equipment and you will only need your personal equipment. We supply sleds, tents, stoves, pots, food and fuel, ropes and sled harnesses, GPS and telecommunication equipment.

You will need to supply all your own clothing, sleeping gear and ski equipment. If you wish we can assist with the purchase of equipment and clothing suitable to the expedition.

A full equipment list will be sent to you on confirmation of booking.

Communications

We carry the latest in satellite communication equipment on our expeditions, facilitating good contact with the outside world. This also improves safety in that we have instant communications with rescue services in the unlikely event an evacuation is required. It is possible for you to utilize our equipment or you may bring your own but we request you confirm with us to establish power requirements can be met.
