North Pole Last Degree
To ski to the north pole is a dream for those of us who have heard about the adventures of Fridjof Nansen, Roald Amundsen and Robert Peary, whose adventures have stirred in us a desire to travel into the unknown. What we don’t have to endure is the long march to get there and to be away for more than a few days.
Trips to the North Pole can only be undertaken from the end of march to the end of april each year. During wintertime the temperatures are extremely cold and there is total darkness for 24 hours a day. On the 23rd March the sun returns and the temperature varies from -15°c to -35°c in April. During spring and summer the ice melts and it is not safe to fly in by aeroplane or helicopter.
These trips to the North Pole are a unique opportunity to experience the dramatic nature of the arctic region in the short time period of 11 days. We travel to Longyearbyen. We will use one day there to get acquainted with equipment and daily routines.
Adventure Dynamics organises this trip and provides equipment and all the logistics. As organiser we are very well acquainted with the conditions and needs for such a trip. In some cases we use other highly qualified guides who have tons of experience with regard to arctic conditions, winter training, skiing, survival, medics and polar bear protection. We can guarantee some of the best guides in the world who will make this trip an experience of a life time!
