Some have travelled there by ship, others by submarine, and Top Gear’s Jeremy Clarkson even drove there! Our December Virtual Challenge is about journeying across the frozen Arctic Ocean the traditional way – on foot to the top of the globe’s icy cap, and arriving at the frosted North Pole flag before the New Year dawns. There are 4 expedition route options – from the sharp 100 km ‘Norway Route’, to the epic 400 km ‘Greenland Route’. Choose your wintry challenge – take it on anywhere, anytime in December – log your progress on our ‘stylised’ Virtual Map – and share your progress online as you head up to 90 degrees North!
There are ‘Prize Draws’ for reaching the route halfway point by 15th December, and a chance of a place on our Saharan Challenge for those at the Pole by the 31st. Fund-raise for a charity if you wish to, and there’s a North Pole medal & neck buff for all challengers. If you have a dog get them involved, as canine companions have been pillars of successful Arctic expeditions!
