Last Degree Expedition (90 N)
This expedition challenges individuals as they ski from 89 degrees North to the Geographical North Pole (90 degrees North). Unlike the journey to South Pole which is landmass,this expedition is across the Arctic Ocean which is dynamic pack ice that requires you to be flexible to deal with the many obstacles that you will face; open water, huge pressure ridges and extreme weather. For those prepared to push themselves this is an incredible tough test of endurance in temperatures as cold as -35degrees.
