ICE WARRIOR EXPEDITION BASECAMP
Not only is BASECAMP a specialist outdoor shop, it is also a hub for outdoor activity training courses. From January 2019, we will be launching the ICE WARRIOR SCHOOL OF NAVIGATION.
We are ideally positioned to provide in-depth NAVIGATION DAY COURSES that will develop and challenge your skills. Training will be provided at three levels: INTRODUCTION, INTERMEDIATE and ADVANCED. Select your level of expertise or choose to undertake a number of days to truly accelerate your learning. Furthermore, we will be running a CELESTIAL NAVIGATION for those that wish to learn the ancient techniques of "following the sun and stars". And to put it all to the test, we will host both DAYTIME and NIGHTTIME CHALLENGES out on the moor.
Courses will run from 9am until 5 pm - with lunch and snacks included.
Night time courses will run from 4pm until 10pm - with snacks included.
We can arranged accommodation if so required.
Each day will cost £85. You can book now at the Ice Warrior website.
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.
