Route & Maps

During a 10-day polar expedition, the Explora Project logistics team will traverse Sarek National Park, in Swedish Lapland, on skis with a pulk sled, and kite-skiing certain sections.

The most mountainous region in Sweden will offer us the chance to climb a few peaks on skis and to scout out the key sections for participants in the March 2020 expedition.

We are offering three people the opportunity to experience the ins and outs of a real polar expedition.

We plan to test traditional expedition tents as well as a group expedition tent heated by a wood-burning stove.
