ICE WARRIOR - Where ordinary people do extraordinary things
Founded by Jim McNeill, Ice Warrior trains ordinary people from all walks of life to become competent, safe modern-day explorers, undertaking ground breaking, purposeful and worthwhile expeditions. Our quest is to help scientists gauge the pulse of the planet by developing people, to discover change and deliver it to global audiences in a way we can all understand, fostering a much better understanding of the world we live in and on; ultimately helping us to survive.
We will take you from absolute novice through to accomplished explorer starting with an optional Selection Weekend, which gives you a good idea as to whether you are suitable, going on to Expedition Core Skills based on Dartmoor, through to Basic and Advanced Polar Training in our base in Svalbard, Norway and culminating in an eight-day “Final” Training Expedition (the ultimate test!).
Ice Warrior started in 2001 and has since trained over 350 people to live, work and play in the world’s extreme polar environments.
We have undertaken seven Flagship Expeditions, so far.
Lastpole will be the eighth and the biggest, bravest, boldest and most important expedition we have undertaken. www.lastpole.co.uk
Not only that but, we truly believe, the most important expedition of our time.
