5-day polar skills

If you’re intrigued by polar exploration, it’s a good idea to invest some time into understanding the challenges, planning and preparation involved before going on a bigger expedition.

A shorter trip in cold conditions and not too far from safety is a good way of building skills and confidence and for acquiring experience gradually.

Our polar training expeditions aim to give you an understanding of how you cope mentally and physically in these conditions and how equipment behaves in the cold. You have the chance to get familiar with your equipment and test the warmth and practicality of your clothing, as well as get a feel for what it’s like to be pulling a sled – a task that benefits from specific training to develop the muscles required for it.

If you want to prepare yourself more fully for a multi-day polar expedition and require a training plan, it’s a good idea to consider one of our Training Consultations.
