North Pole Expedition

How you can sign up, train and prepare for a North Pole expedition?

We invite you to come to the prestigious Royal Geographical Society for an information presentation by celebrated polar guide Alan Chambers MBE.

Alan is a polar adventurer who received the MBE for ‘exceptional leadership in extreme adversity’ when he led the first successful unsupported British Geographic North Pole expedition, walking 672 nautical miles in temperatures as low as -65°C dragging a sledge the weight of a baby elephant. In preparation for his expedition Alan lived with a family of Inuits, indigenous to the Arctic for between 1 and 2 months every year for 5 years.

Alan has since led top business leaders & chief executives to the North Pole in virtually every North Pole season since 2002. The North Pole challenge helped them explore and reflect on their own leadership capabilities.

Jeremy Gane FRGS, and also a director of Charity Challenge, has been researching and developing North Pole expeditions with Alan and Simon Albert of Charity Challenge for the last five years. Gane and Marshall has teamed up with Charity Challenge to offer these exclusive North Pole expeditions, guided by Alan Chambers.

The Information Day will take place on Friday 19th June 2015 from 2 to 4:30pm in the Lowther Room at the Royal Geographic Society, 1 Kensington Gore, London, SW7 2AR. We have arranged for the main presentation to run from 14:30-15:15. Tea and coffee will be served from 14:00.

Bear Watching in Finland

Brown Bear Watching Finland

May and June are simply magical months to go brown bear watching in Finland. The onset of summer marks the beginning of an unrivalled wildlife spectacle, the bear-viewing season.  Finland’s 1,000-strong population of brown bear emerge from their winter hibernation and begin to roam the woods and mountains to the east of the country. Here, in the remote taiga on the border with Russia, you can watch these most elusive of creatures in the wild, as they play, forage, and mate in their natural habitat largely undisturbed by man. Few countries in Europe offer wildlife experiences to rival that of bear watching in Finland. Continue reading Bear Watching in Finland
