The Canadian Richard Weber is undoubtedly one of the most experienced and well-known polar guides who have ever plied their trade. He organised and guided, between 1978 and 2006, more than 45 Arctic expeditions.
Tessum Weber is regarded as one of the foremost Arctic guides in the arctic. His experience ranges from technical projects such as leading sea kayaking trips, ski expeditions, hiking/trekking trips to logistical projects such as working with film crews in remote regions.
Business consultant John Wilton-Davies (born in 1973), with no experience whatsoever in polar travelling, decided one day that he wanted to walk solo to the South Pole. He was 34 years old at that time!
