PolarExplorers North Pole 3-Day Expedition Testimonials

Karine HauserAnna and I are sitting here on this bank holiday weekend reminiscing over the fabulous adventure that we had in your company at the Pole. We learnt so much in such a short time and we both said that arriving in the UK was when it hit us how incredibly privileged we are to have been to such an inaccessible, yet unbelievably awe inspiring place. We would both like to thank you all and the guides Lonnie and Dirk for their time with us, their positivity and advice.  Rick, thank you for coordinating things for us and allowing us a glimpse of what it must be like to be a true explorer... although we still have no idea of how hard it must be to do the last degree let alone anything more tricky!

Sari KantolaIt truly was an exceptional experience - thank you for talking me into doing it!  Besides the amazing landscape it is always the company that makes the journey even more memorable - and  I was lucky enough to have wonderful team mates and great guides. The expedition left me with a thought of either going there again, or trying the South Pole. But first I have to get over my dislike for sleeping bags!!

3-Day North Pole Expedition Qualifications

This expedition is for people who are in good shape, and are eager to push themselves physically and mentally. Though the skiing can be quite demanding, it does not require significant skill (it is very much like walking with skis on).

You will need to have very good cardiovascular endurance and the ability to pull a sled (between 15-20 kilos) for several hours at a time. Towards the end of the day when we stop skiing, it is critical that you have the energy reserves to help set up camp and keep yourself warm. Most importantly you need to be able to regulate your body temperature so that you do not get too cold, or too hot while you are on the move.

This expedition will encounter extremely cold conditions, and living in such cold conditions 24 hours a day can be very challenging. You do not have to be a world class athlete to participate in and enjoy this expedition, but every ounce of training and preparation will help to make the expedition more enjoyable and safer.
