Hardangervidda 2019

 In February I will ski solo for 6 days  trip across the Hardangervidda plateau in Norway. This is the area in which the now infamous ‘heroes of telemark’ operation took place during WWII. The aim of this trip is to test out my equipment for a 45 day expedition to Baffin Island in April 2020.

The Team

The Logistics – Carl Alvey

Carl Alvey is an internationally renowned polar guide who has guided clients across Greenland and on full distance South Pole trips. I will stay with Carl at his hotel in Haugastol, and he will organise rental equipment and transport for me.

The Sledder

I will complete this short six-day training expedition by myself. The aim of this trip is to test equipment and develop cold travel skills for the Baffin 2020 expedition.
