Our guide team of Annie and Eric are off to Iceland to prepare for our crossing of the Vatnajökull Icecap.
The team will be on the trail for nine days, giving regular updates along the way. Follow along for stories and pictures from the land of fire and ice!
"The Winter Outdoor Retailer Show in Salt Lake City, Utah is one of the largest gatherings of outdoor gear retailers coming together under one roof. I was able to visit some of Polar Explore’s trusted gear partners to see what’s coming up for the 2015-2016 season.
First stop was the Baffin booth, where Karen gave me a great introduction to the new Guide-Pro 3 Pin boot for polar travel using three-pin style bindings. The new boot builds off the success of theExpedition 3 Pin, a boot released last year and put to the test by Polar Explores during the 2014 North Pole season and the 45-day South Pole Ski Expedition this past November.
