Celebrating 25 years of polar travel and over 95 Polar Expeditions

PolarExplorers started as a small company with big ambitions. Back in 1993 we organized and guided the first-ever commercial North Pole Dogsled Expedition (two degrees of latitude). Since then our passion has taken us around the globe guiding expeditions in some of the world's harshest (and most beautiful) environments. Backed by our decades of experience we create exceptional and unique adventures for the intrepid traveler. All our expeditions are based on the following four core principals:

1) Transformative Expriences

2) Individual Attention

3) Safety & Success

4) Environmental Stewardship

We know that the ends of the Earth are remote, extreme, often inhospitable and intensely beautiful. They are also historically rich destinations and among the last frontiers for the discriminating adventurer. 

If you find satisfaction and joy in exploration then you'll enjoy what we have to offer. We are confident that you will find an expedition within these pages that sparks your dreams, and when you do, give us a call or send us an email.

Let us help you make that dream a reality!
