Adventures in Polar Exploration


“History is always an integral part of the present. We are well aware that we are sailing in the wake of great explorers and adventurers.” – Børge Ousland

When it comes to polar exploration, Børge Ousland is a natural. An avid outdoorsman and former member of Norway’s Marinejeger – equivalent to the U.S. Navy SEALs – he has the physical and mental toughness to survive extreme conditions, as demonstrated by his history-making solo crossing of the Antarctic. Heir to a great Norwegian tradition of polar voyages, he has crafted expeditions replicating the feats of pioneers – in some cases accomplishing what they were unable to do. An audience favorite for his charismatic and compelling presentations, Ousland will report on his latest expeditions with photos and hair-raising video, fresh from the field.
