Save the Poles
Since last November, Eric Larsen has been involved in a bid to reach all three Poles in under 365 days. He began by trekking to the South Pole last January (with two clients) and this Arctic spring, he is embarking on a trip to the North Pole from Ward Hunt.

Last spring we have followed Eric Larsen leading an expedition of three to North Pole. This trek was only a part of a wider project: to make the three poles in less than 365 days.

It has been a difficult start for the trio led by Eric Larsen, who like all of the other expeditions chose Ward Hunt or Cape Discovery as their departure point. There have been some truly extreme temperatures this season, not to mention terrible ice conditions during the early days of their venture.
