Drawn from Jim's 35 plus years of polar expeditioning, our training is comprehensive, intensive, wholly fulfilling, great fun and second to none.
We have two bases. One in Resolute Bay, High Arctic Canada and the other just 800 miles form the North Pole on the island of Spitsbergen, Norway.
This course is based in Svalbard and as such gives you a true experience of the Arctic and all that it has to offer.
For many, this will be their first taste of polar expeditioning.
This is an Arctic course based just 800 miles from the North Pole and as such gives you a true experience of the cold nature of polar expeditioning – even though you will be accommodated much of the time. The aim of the course is to establish a good skill set for extreme expeditioning and then practice them. The syllabus remains flexible throughout but will include: skiing; navigation; clothing; equipment; risks and managing them; cold water immersion; emergency procedures and critical crisis management. There will be a series of evening lectures and discussions on various aspects of expeditioning, showing some of the many photographs and video clips Ice Warrior has accumulated over the years.
