25 YEARS OF POLAR EXPEDITIONS

USA based company celebrates a legacy of exploration

(TRAVPR.COM) UNITED STATES - April 12th, 2018 - What does it take to guide over 500 people to the North and South Poles? The answer is 25 years of experience and hundreds of days skiing in the world’s most extreme environment, where an average day "at the office" includes enduring minus forty degree temperatures and keeping everything you don't want to freeze on your body. 

On April 14, 2018, PolarExplorers, the world’s leading polar expedition guiding company, will kick off their 25th anniversary. PolarExplorers’ reputation has been built over hundreds of expeditions and thousands of cold, frozen miles in some of the planet’s least forgiving environments.

The 25th anniversary milestone celebrates  the hard work and astounding achievements of PolarExplorers’ exceptional guides and their ever-expanding family of expedition participants. 

It was way back in 1991 that PolarExplorers’ CEO (Chief Exploratory Officer), Rick Sweitzer, conceived of and started planning the first-ever dogsled expedition to the North Pole for amateur adventurers, which was successfully completed in 1993. "It was a little like going to the moon," says Sweitzer of the journey that was far from a guaranteed success. "We didn't have any satellite phones and our only GPS was the size of a book. That first expedition ended up being a huge success and we have been at it ever since."

To celebrate their 25th anniversary PolarExplorers is offering several exciting expeditions including a ski expedition from the coast of Antarctica to the South Pole, a ski traverse of the Greenland Icecap, Last Degree Ski Expeditions to both the North and South Poles, a ski traverse of Europe’s largest glacier, and numerous other polar expeditions. They have also published a book entitled There Are Strange Things Done In The Midnight Sun - A Collection of Stories Celebrating 25 Years of Polar Expeditions.

“We love guiding polar expeditions,” says PolarExplorers director Annie Aggens, “it takes a special person to want to ski, dogsled or fly to the ends of the Earth, and we are here to help them make their dreams come true.”
