The Arctic Circle is an incredible place where magical things happen.  But never forget, polar weather is extreme, and as with any austere environment we ask you to please treat the wilderness with respect, and come prepared.

Of course we make a sacrifice to the weather spirits every evening before a trip, but frustratingly this doesn't guarantee clear skies and sunny weather.  Arctic storms can be ferocious and exciting so be prepared for anything between +5⁰C to -30⁰C.  Pay attention to your jacket, footwear, gloves and sleeping bag, the quality of these items will have the greatest impact on your comfort and wellbeing.  For tips and tricks take a look at Mat Howes Expedition Leader's Webinar on Polar Travel.
