More Info

There is no land at the North Pole, only ice. Between the end of the polar winter and the beginning of the great thaw, there are only a few weeks in which it is possible to ski to the North Pole.

Since 1908, when Robert Peary was the first known person to set foot on the North Pole, it has been the goal of every avid explorer to repeat the feat. In spite of all the advances in modern technology, the list of people who have successfully made it to the North Pole remains quite small.

Part of the reason for this is the time commitment that it requires. Any successful cross-country skiing expedition will ake at least two weeks and most guides require a period of training in a glaciated mountain range prior to the expedition.
