Just launched, the Antarctic Heritage Trust’s Inspiring Explorers Expedition for 2018.
Inspiring Explorers is a programme that seeks to connect young people with the spirit of exploration and gives them a platform to share their stories and inspire others.
Applications are now open for the Inspiring Explorers’ Expedition for 2018!
The expedition will attempt a 560km crossing on skis of the Greenland ice cap.
We are looking for three young New Zealanders or Australians (20-35 years) to participate.
The expedition honours Norwegian explorer Fridtjof Nansen, who made the first successful crossing of the Greenland ice cap in 1888. Nansen is regarded as an icon of polar exploration and his innovations and expeditions inspired explorers of the Antarctic heroic-era, including Scott, Shackleton and Amundsen.
We are looking for young people with an adventurous spirit, resilience and endurance to be a part of this special team. Applicants do not need to be seasoned polar explorers.
Applications close Sunday 19 November.
