Participant Resources

Welcome to the 2017 Arctic Expedition Team!

We are very excited to welcome you as a member of the 2017 Arctic Expedition Team. You will soon learn that there is no other place in the world like the Arctic. But more than that, it will be the lessons learned, the new perspectives gained, and the new friendships formed, that will stay with you for a lifetime.

This incredible journey and experience would not be possible if not for you! Your efforts, interest and passion have led you to become a part of this great experience. As a member of the expedition team, you play a critical role in the success of our journey.

To help you prepare for your upcoming expedition with us, we have developed this Arctic Orientation Package. The following pages include very useful information from travel tips to gear recommendations to our Code of Conduct. You will find details about our ship – your new home and expedition headquarters – and lots of details about the expedition itself. Please read this document, save it, and then read it again! If you have any questions, you are always welcome to contact us.
