Several of our team members have mountains named after them
We have assembled the most exclusive team of polar experts in the world. They are some of the most recognized scientists, naturalists, historians, extreme athletes, ornithologists, geologists, zoologists and biologists anywhere. But more than that, like you, they share a passion for exploration and adventure.
They are members of some of the most select and distinguished institutions around the globe, including the Explorer's Club, the Royal Geographic Society, the Arctic Club, and the Antarctica Club. One of our Expedition Team members wrote the chapter on Antarctica for the Encyclopedia Britannica. They have established many, many firsts in their fields. Several have mountains named after them.
They're a fascinating group. Enthusiastic. Accomplished. Totally dedicated, you'll enjoy travelling with them.
Polar arts program
Throughout history, great voyages have been captured on paper and film. From Edward Wilson's watercolours of Scott's Antarctic expeditions to Amundsen's famous photographs of his trek to the South Pole, the visual record of a journey is an integral part of great exploration. Your expedition will be no exception. Our “Polar Arts Program” features artists-in-residence who will record the journey. They'll also conduct lectures and lead photography and painting workshops for travellers. These artists have been selected from all over the world for their outstanding talent and familiarity with the polar regions. They will enhance the way you see and experience your expedition. You will see things differently through their eyes, and your own.
The best possible experience
Backed by remarkable technology, resources and expertise, your Expedition Team has a single goal: to create the most rewarding and unforgettable Arctic experience possible. Thanks to our professional and government contacts across the polar regions, we're able to gain permission for landings in highly protected areas, some of them - such as the eastern shore of Ellesmere Island in Canada's High Arctic - previously unexplored by non-specialists. Your Expedition Leaders exercise that same blend of determination and ingenuity throughout your journey, as they tailor landing options to suit varied interests and levels of activity, and respond to unforeseen opportunities - a sighting of unusual wildlife, an invitation into a remote villager's home - at a moment's notice.
