Welcome to a collection of the expeditions and projects we have completed to date and some that are to come in the near future. 

CURRENT EXPEDITION: The LAst Great First

In one of the most audacious polar expeditions ever undertaken, the team will attempt to cross the entire continental mass of Antarctica, coast to coast, including it’s permanent ice shelves, unsupported, using manpower alone. This stands as one of the last great firsts of polar exploration and if successful, will go down in the annals of polar history and human endeavour.

The team successfully completed the first unsupported ski and raft crossing of Iceland. Skiing across the vast Vatnajokull Icecap then rafting through the wild and desolate high volcanic interior of this harsh and desolate land. A truly multidisciplinary expedition, it involved skiing pulling sledges, load carrying huge 50kg packs, and rafting wild uncharted glacial rivers. Success was a testament to toughness, adaptability and determination.

Greenland

Over 26 days the team skied from Tassilaq on the East Coast of Greenland to Kangerlussuaq on the West Coast unsupported, following the line of the Arctic Circle. In doing so they crossed the vast expanse of the Greenland Ice Sheet, facing huge crevasse fields and fierce polar storms. The team also witnessed the impact of climate change first-hand, negotiating meltwater rivers and huge meltwater lakes very early in the Arctic Spring season.

Magnetic North Pole

Battling polar storms with temperatures down to minus 60 deg centigrade and dodging hunting polar bears, the team skied for over three weeks across the frozen Arctic Ocean to reach the 1996 Magnetic North Pole. This remarkable location marks the point of confluence of the Earth’s magnetic field out on the pack ice of the Arctic Ocean.
