ULTIMATE ARCTIC ODYSSEY

North Pole - All the Way

Skier2 SL

Village SL

Each day will be an adventure as we navigate over pressure ridges, search for routes around open leads of water, and set camp on multi-year pans of ice as we live and travel on the polar pack ice.

We all owe it to ourselves to express our true spirit of adventure, now you can achieve it on this amazing journey!

The North Pole is the 'test piece' of polar expeditions and a serious undertaking. Surrounded by sea ice and in total darkness for half the year, the North Pole is attainable only during a short window of time. If too early, darkness and extremely cold temperatures prevail. If too late, the frozen Arctic Ocean melts into drifting pack ice enshrouded by water.

Expedition members will be required to tow a laden sled and be an active contributor to camp setting and cooking procedures making for a very physical adventure.

PREPARE

Fitness

An essential ingredient for participants is physical fortitude for working hard in a cold-weather environment, hence each member must be extremely strong and healthy. Team members will haul sleds weighing (initially) around 75kg/165lb of provisions as well as both personal and group equipment. Each day will be long and arduous, and all team members must possess sufficient strength and fitness to be able to contribute to establishing camp, putting up tents, and cook meals after a hard day. This can only be achieved with considerable and focused physical preparation.

Technical Experience

Team members must be conversant in winter camping skills which includes putting up tents and camping in the snow and cooking with lightweight mountain stoves. Team members must have a full awareness of their personal parameters in extreme environments such as their food intake and hydration needs, thermo-regulation and avoidance of cold-weather-injury. Team members must have previous polar travel experience or have completed a polar travel course with a focus on arctic survival and travel skills such as crossing thin ice and open leads of water.

Skiing Experience

Team members must have previous polar travel experience and have completed a polar travel course.

When you are as remote as one can be on this planet, you want to know you made the right choice about who you are going with.

NP4 SL

Like all expeditions you might attempt, you must train appropriately to be ready for the rigors of what you set out to achieve. For the North Pole all The Way, that requirement is massive, but we want massive because we want adventures that do continue to challenge us.

An expedition to North Pole has many moving parts and will demand the upmost of anyone aspiring to try it.

"The extra cost up front is an investment repaid by quality people, logistics, facilities, food, experience, program and process. If you ever hear I have gone with someone else... it is not me."
