North Pole – Last Degree

Guided expedtions to the North Pole, April 1-15, 2017

What is to be found out there amidst the cold and ice? At a first glance not very much at all – but often it is precisely this nothingness, the overpowering silence, the broad horizon and the absence of any distraction whatsoever which open up a complete new perspective. I always say, «-45 degrees is not very interesting, how you deal with it is.» An expedition in the Arctic will tell you a great deal about yourself. Come along and discover a whole new world! I guide a small group to the Pole every year. Dates and further information
