Exploration and adventure is our deep and life-long passion. Growing up on stories from the golden ages of Polar exploration and wilderness discovery gave us a yearning to become part of this great history of human endeavour. Coupled with a deep respect and sense of wonder at the natural world and the Earth’s great wild places, we have been forging a narrative of adventure that has led us inexorably to The Last Great First.
Join us on our adventure. We promise to share with you our stories of success and failure, hardship and endurance, wonder and achievement as we travel on this greatest of journeys.
We invite you to become a part of our team alongside our partners, sponsors and patrons, helping to make this most ambitious of expeditions a reality.
Welcome to “The Last Great First”

Unsupported ski crossing of 
Antarctica

Antarctica 2021

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.
