9 Questions About Spending the Night at 90N

A Night at the North Pole with PolarExplorers

In April 2016 PolarExplorers will forge into it's 23rd season of offering North Pole Flights to intrepid travelers from around the world. With the North Pole at the epi-center of international policy and scientific studies spending a night at the North Pole has never been more exciting. We caught up with PolarExplorers guide Eric Lillstrom to ask him 9 questions about overnighting at 90 degrees North.

Do you have the ambition to take part in a Polar Expedition but are hesitant because you lack experience? We interviewed one of our most recent North Pole Last Degree team members, Danny Lubert, who was in this same position and asked him to reflect on his first expedition experience. 

100 years ago today Ernest Shackleton was on the Endurance, beset in ice, slowly drifting to the north (opposite of where he wanted to go). Little did he know what an adventure lay ahead of him!

We had the privilege of sitting down with legendary polar expedition guide, Keith Heger, since he is in our office everyday!

Here are some of his thoughts on his 44-day Full South Pole expedition on the Messner route.
