LEVEL 1 EXPEDITION ON SNOWSHOES

LED BY DIXIE DANSERCOER IN SVALBARD

  • Put the techniques of polar travel into practice on a nine-day journey, with five days on the ice on Spitsbergen, one of the Svalbard islands.

  • Travel with Dixie Dansercoer across frozen fjords and far-reaching ice fields.

 

For an entire week, Dixie Dansercoer will submerge you in the world of polar travel, enabling you to acquire priceless experience and put into practice everything you learnt in the initiation weekend. The location for this expedition is far off the beaten track: you’ll find yourself on the Arctic tundra of Spitsbergen.

 

The first days on the ice will be needed to acclimatise and familiarize yourself in this new environment. Flanked by frozen fjords and towering mountains, we will set out on snowshoes through the far-reaching ice fields of the stunning fairy-tale landscape.

 

Dansercoer will work with you to improve your competence and technique, allowing you to safely and purposefully travel on foot in the Arctic conditions. You’ll benefit from Dansercoer’s experience in learning the techniques of getting dressed in the freezing cold and the rituals involved in setting up camp. You will pull sleds through the day and spend the nights in a tent under the winter stars. The emphasis will always be on developing good, all-round polar experience and enjoying and appreciating everything polar travel has to offer. This Level 1 expedition is open to anyone with the motivation and good health needed to travel through the polar environment. Experience in winter camping is not a requirement, although a plus.
