North Pole Expeditions & Mountaineering
Every year, I ask people to come with me to the North or South Poles to see the effects of climate change with their own eyes. By bringing these people with me, I hope that the benefits these people's testimony brings will far outweigh the carbon emissions caused by their travels.
I also love moutaineering and can organise an expedition on demand.
Climate change affects us all, but it does not affect us all equally. The poorest and most vulnerable -those who have done the least to contribute to global warming- are bearing the brunt of the impact today.
Next Polar Expedition
Arctic Ocean, Last Degree to the North Pole 2017
You will find here below the programme of our next North Pole Last degree trek for the spring 2018. It uses to take place between 01st April and 16th April and is organised in collaboration with Vicaar, a russian company based in St Petersburg. They provide the all technical logistics to fly us over the arctic ocean and opening such an amazing and unique drfifting station for only few weeks. It will be our starting point to heading to the north pole. The schedule for the 2008 season will be announced later in June. Hope to meet you next year in the cold at Longyearbyen.
And may I recall for you these words I wrote a long time ago :
“A place where all roads meet, a convergence of the imaginary, the North Pole is at the axis of rotation of the Earth. At this point, all longitudes coalesce, all time-lines meet, and the hours fuse together. All directions are South... This is a mystical, mythic point whose meaning outstrips the imaginations ability to grapple with it.”
Stay tuned !
